Driving without a license

Driving without a valid driving licence is a significant charge to be facing and can have a serious impact on your life, including a criminal record and possible jail time.

There are certain circumstances in which you may be driving without a licence which will be treated as a less serious charge, such as driving unsupervised on a provisional licence for example. However, if you are already serving a driving ban for another motoring offence, which is why you do not have a valid licence, this will be taken much more seriously.

What are the penalties?

If you are caught driving without a licence you will be arrested, charged and summoned to court. Once there, a judge will decide how serious your punishment will be. You could face:

You can see that the penalties are steep, especially if you are driving following a ban already given out by a court. They will see this as a complete disregard of the court and its rulings.

More reasons to choose us  
Whilst traveling on my motorcycle and stationary at a roundabout I placed my foot on the road in order to stabilise my motorcycle, a third party vehicle squeezed past my motorcycle and in the process squashed me between the motorcycle and the car. I suffered a serious injury to my left ankle resulting in a fracture and requiring surgical treatment. I was off work for many months. I was recommended to Ashmans Solicitors through one of their previous clients. They pursued my case and to my horror the third party driver denied liability. As a result of Ashmans pro-active approach and investigative nature they managed to provide documentary evidence which confirmed that the third party driver was at fault for my injury. As a result of the complex nature of my injury and the long term effect on my livelihood they have been successful in obtaining a number of interim payments in support of my claim. Throughout the claims process they have been friendly, easily accessible and have kept me informed throughout the whole process. They have helped me to apply for benefits for which I had no knowledge of and without the assistance of Ashmans solicitors I would have suffered more than just my physical injury. I would recommend anyone to seek the assistance of Ashmans solicitors should they have the misfortune of being involved in an accident.
