Registration Offences

Dealing with Registration Traffic Offences

The issue of registration would appear to be an operator onus offence, with employed drivers not responsible for paying or maintaining registration. But suppose you receive a penalty notice for driving an unregistered heavy vehicle.

In that case, it will usually be accompanied by a hefty fine and loss of points, and it will always be directed towards the driver. In most, if not all cases, the heavy vehicle will be registered, and the reason for the penalty will be for a number plate being obscured or unable to be captured by a camera.

If this has happened to you, contact us 24/7, there may be a defence against this charge that protects you from this contentious and unfair offence.
