    Got no sympathy for you at all I'm afraid!

    It's people like you that cause headaches for the rest of us. No tax I can understand, to a degree but you can arrange instant insurance cover over the phone. I did when I bought my last car.

    You're lucky they didn't take your car off you there and then as it can be done now under section 165 of the road traffic act for no insurance.

    I would suggest that you may get a fine at Court and possibly points as well and I personally hope you do.

    It's people like you that cause the rest of us to pay so much for car insurance to cover the cost of uninsured drivers who have an accident.

    A better grasp of the English language would be nice too

    You must have insurance as for no tax and MOt there is a statutary defence if you had booked with an MOT station to take it there not just taking it to your mechanic .You will get points and fine and your insurance will rocket.

    you will be ok mate. i got done for having no tax or insurance and i got 3 points and a £270 fine. Dont let this worry you, you will not go to jail as long as you tell the truth then you cant slip up. If you have an auction form or something to show that you had just bought the car this will show that you are not lying. Hope this has helped and everything goes all right in court. Good luck mate and dont worry..

    OK,

    1) it is your responcibility to ensure that you have insurance on the vehicle, the fact you have no MOT does not matter as you were on your way to having it Tested at a garage.

    2) the tax is another matter, you may recieve a fine in court for this. usually is £200

    - unlikley you will receive a custodial sentance for these offences, its is more likely you will recieve several fines, and dont be shocked if you licence is revoked/suspended for a period of time

    unlucky you had an accident dude!

    you are the only one "playing with your life"

    If you had it booked in you will be able to prove that.

    anyone knows when they buy a car they need tax mot and insurance.

    Turn up at court and take it like a man.
