I am sorry, but this is not a chat service. It’s an email reply board and therefore there may be a delay getting back to you because we have clients and travelling and other users to deal with.
Sometimes we will get back to you in minutes, other times it will be longer.
I assume that you are being taken to court for driving without insurance. It is what is called an offence of strict liability which means that it doesn’t matter why you are driving without insurance, you commit an offence if you are.
What you do have however is litigation sufficient that you may get an absolute discharge if the court accepts what you were told is genuine and that the paperwork was genuinely given by the dealer.
I appreciate that this was in the car park which I imagine was a public car park but you will be surprised to hear that even if it was a private car park, such as a pub, but to which the public had access, it would still be an offence.
I’m not certain what else you want to know about this because you haven’t actually asked a question.
Can I clarify anything else for you?
I am happy to answer any specific points arising from this.
Please take a moment to look at the top right-hand corner of the page and rate my service by clicking one of the stars at the top of the screen.
You may need to login again to use the rating service. Although it says "rate to finish" it doesn't close the thread and we can still exchange emails.
It's important that you use the rating service because that gives me credit.
It doesn't just give me a pat on the head! It's what gets me paid!!
There is also an experts incentive scheme whereby the more 5 star ratings I get I do actually get a pat on the head!
