To cut a long story short, I was

Customer Question

My name is Tumay! To cut a long story short, I was driving Friday morning Jan 22nd thru Rotherhite Tunnel London with stock in my vehicle. As I came out of the tunnel the police were doing random checks and pulled me over. I stopped and everything checked out ok, but unfortunately because I was taking stock to my shop, my insurance DID NOT cover this particular objective. They asked me why? I replied Im taking stock to my shop, I have SDP insurance and as long as I can see out my side mirrors I thought I was legal.
They said they will have to take my car away an issued me with a £150PCN. BTW, whilst they were writing me up, I offered to extend my insurance to cover me for 'Business use' and pay the fine, both of them on the spot, which from my account meant that I could legally drive my car away. But again point blank they refused and i had to get the train to work.
The very next day i took all my documents to the car pound, paid the fine and showed them that I extended my insurance for business use. Having gone thru all this unnecessary procedure i got my car back and felt that I should really appeal against it for the part were I offered to extend my insurance there and then and pay the fine which again i must stress I felt was sufficient to drive off with my car.
Having just felt, let it go. I have just got a letter this morning from the Police with a Conditional Offer of Fixed Penalty for the very same incident. £300 fine and 6 Points for No insurance to Section 143 of the RTA.
Is this right can they carry on with the same incident and charge me again? And also i did have insurance but no extended business use! I feel really hard done by
Can you advise

It seems the professional has left this conversation. This happens occasionally, and it's usually because the professional thinks that someone else might be a better match for your question. I've been working hard to find a new professional to assist you with your question, but sometimes finding the right professional can take a little longer than expected.
I wonder whether you're OK with continuing to wait for an answer. If you are, please let me know and I will continue my search. If not, feel free to let me know and I will cancel this question for you and issue a refund.
Thank you!
