What date is applicable for obtaining vehicle insurance cover, conviction date or sentencing date as my conviction date is older than the sentencing date
Hello my name is ***** ***** I will help you with this.
It would be the conviction date - as that is the date you were found or pleaded guilty to the offence.
Can I clarify anything for you about this today please?
thank you for your reply, however, I need a piece of legislation or something similar (hence, high level of detail selected in question)to give to my insurance co to explain why I did not declare it on my insurance. The conviction was over 5 years but the sentencing was two year years later. both the conviction date and sentencing date are recorded on my licence and I presume will remain there until 11 years have passed from conviction date.
Not all criminal law is legislation, some is common law.
Therefore they wont necessarily be anything that specifies what is applied in statute.
But for the purposes of Court it is ALWAYS date of conviction.
