Some Welwyn Hatfield car crash claims that we here at Accident Advice Helpline are asked to help people with, are caused by drivers who do not hold a current driving licence. A study recently carried out by the Automobile Association reveals that 1 in every 40 drivers is riding round without a valid licence; that’s approximately 800,000 drivers in all.
Most unlicensed drivers are young males
In a recent statement issued by Andrew Howard, head of road safety at the Automobile Association, he is quoted as saying that whilst the vast majority of legitimate drivers here in UK shoulder the burden of road tax, and MOT tests, there is also a frighteningly large core of illegal motorists who purposely refuse to do so. The majority of these unlicensed drivers are young males.
The problem of uninsured drivers
Of course, that’s not the only problem. An unlicensed driver is technically uninsured as well. This creates problems with any Welwyn Hatfield car crash claims in as much as is not possible to go down the normal route of claiming compensation from the offender’s insurance company. However, all is not lost. We here at Accident Advice Helpline have been dealing with these sorts of claims since we first started trading back in the year 2000.
