Do I have to have a licence to drive a motor vehicle?
Yes, it is a legal requirement for anyone operating a motor vehicle on public roads to hold a valid licence that corresponds to the type of vehicle they are driving. For example, you cannot legally drive an HGV if you only have a licence to drive an ordinary car.
What are the reasons for driving without a licence?
One of the primary reasons a person may drive without a licence is a lack of understanding or awareness of the law. In some cases, inexperienced drivers may not be fully informed about the licensing process or may assume that their learner's permit or provisional licence is sufficient to operate a vehicle independently. However, ignorance of the law is not a valid excuse.
Another common reason for driving without a licence is the driver has been disqualified from driving or their licence has expired without them noticing. Furthermore, there are instances where people who have never held a valid driver's licence decide to drive, often due to the necessity of commuting to work, attending to family responsibilities, or a lack of access to alternative transportation options. While their intentions may be understandable, they are still a criminal offence.
What are the penalties for driving without a licence?
The penalty for not having an appropriate driving licence on you ranges from and on-the-spot fine to six months imprisonment, community service orders, or having your car impounded.
Not having a licence could also invalidate your car’s insurance. This could result in a £300 fine and six points on your driving record.
