The law on Driving without a Licence.

Lucinda Dore Solicitors can assist you by presenting your case to the court on your behalf. We do all the talking for you, helping to alleviate the anxiety and stress that you are no doubt feeling as you await your court case.

Section 87 of the Road Traffic Act 1988.

Driving without a Licence is also referred to in law as ‘Driving Otherwise in Accordance with a Licence’. The 1988 Road Traffic Act stipulates that it is:
● an offence for a person to drive on a road a motor vehicle of any class otherwise than in accordance with a licence authorising him to drive a motor vehicle of that class; and● an offence for a person to cause or permit another person to drive on a road a motor vehicle of any class otherwise than in accordance with a licence authorising that person to drive a motor vehicle of that class.

What about provision licence holders?

This offence also covers where a provisional licence holder has failed to comply with the conditions of his provisional licence - e.g. driven unaccompanied or without displaying 'L' plates.
