Hello can I talk to you again

what is your question?

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
My insurance has run out for riding school can I still teach under my licence

Not if your insurance has ran out

Customer: replied 2 months ago.
Is there no way round it

unfortunately not

Hello am I okay to teach riding without insurance if I don’t charge and I make it clear I’m not insured

I do not believe you can as you would still have to obtain public liability insurance to cover members of the public who came on to the site.

Otherwise you would be setting yourself up for potential law suits.

Hello I’m setting up a limited company I’m a ex convict can I have 50 percent shares in it

Has the conviction been deemed spent?

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
No

You can hold shares, but I would be surprised if you would get insurance

Customer: replied 1 month ago.
Why

Most insurance companies will not insure someone with a conviction

Most, does not mean all. You will have to contact a few brokers to see what they are able to place as opposed to going direct.
