    Caught driving with no Insurance or License 2nd time round. Whats going to happen?

    A m8 of mine bought a new car yesterday (astra sport 2.0i) and got caught of the police (in a scooby ) driving it home.

    He's a provisional driver but was driving the car by himself. They've took the keys from him and give him a producer.

    Thing is he has previously been caught for the above (a few months ago) while driving an immaculate BMW 318i which he just traded for the Astra

    What's he looking at???

    Cheers
    John

    Astra mk3 1.4 est.
    Ditto all 3 comments

    Didn't someone else put a thread on here recently about not having insurance.

    I hope put him under the jail not inside it !

    Probably a years ban or so and a few hundred quid fine.

    I have yet to see anyone get any kind of serious punishment for no insurance.

    I hate un-insured people. And he was stupid enough to do it twice (well, get caught twice...)

    All it takes is 2 minutes on www.dayinsure.com to make sure you are legal to drive. I have never knowingly driven without insurance, and never would. Its stupidity at its greatest IMO.

    i hate to piss people off but my girlfriends cousin has been done for it (many times!)and all he'll probably get is 3 points on his provisional for the non valid licence bit and anywhere between 3-6 points for no insurance. fine wise prob 60 quid for the invalid license and bout 200ish for the no insurance.

    Tell your M8 that these days it is asking for trouble when you drive a car that is not insured due to a central database accessable to any police car following any motorist, and its done automatically by cameras fitted to most police cars that recoganises vehicle registration index and automaticaly raises an alert in the cockpit of a police car if the car being followed does not have a valid insurance and tax and an MOT. Or if the car is reported as stolen. Though the only thing this concept cannot do is to check individual driver driving the car, one can get away by driving someone's car insured in the other person's name, and fully taxed ect. in this case the uninsured driver can be caught due to random police stops or when a police officer suspects a badly driven car.

    idiot. If he didnt learn the first time then should be shot, I mean should definitly have a nice big punishment.

    Really though, loss of license, retake test, ban, fine, oh and maybe some points on it when license is returned

    not true. Infact this causes more problems as it comes up as a clone (well will eventually) and thus the clone AND real car get pulled more often!!

    Norwich Union do the same. Has come in VERY handy in the past.

    And at 10.50 per day...

    You could actually insure your ferrari this way. It would cost 7 and a half grand for a year, but would be cheaper than privilege probably!!

    He doesnt have a full license, just a provisional.

    He is only insured to drive with anyone in the car over 21 who had been driving for 3yrs and he is displaying Ls. He has never had Ls on the car and he drives on motorways, he drove 200miles to get the astra and got pulled at scotch corner on the way home.

    He got 6 points and a £200 fine last time round.

    What about a number plate you can change the lettering of while driving (computer type thing). Apart from being great to show your displeasure to the car behind you, i reckon it'd confuse the police somewhat

    This would be ok if he held a full license.

    Only problem with the day insurance is you have to be 21.
