Driving Without a Valid Licence

Driving without a valid driving licence appropriate to that class of vehicle or driving with a provisional licence without the “appropriate person” being present and or displaying “L” plates is an offence under the Road Traffic Act.  If found guilty of this you will be fined and receive either 3-6 penalty points or a discretionary ban.


Normally this will invalidate any insurance policy as well.  It is therefore likely that a charge of driving without an appropriate licence will lead to an additional charge of driving without insurance.  This however may not be the case and any insurance policy should be scrutinised closely.

In respect of Provisional Drivers, an appropriate person is any person over 21, who has held a valid driving licence for a minimum of 3 years.
