What would you like to know about this please?
Was there any way you could have known you weren't insured to drive home?
Ok. You can always plead guilty and ask the court to refrain from applying points on the basis that there are special reasons to do so.
That is a high test. Magistrates are difficult to predict. They should not allow that application if there is any way that you could have known that you were not insured and they should expect you to show that you had checked. However, I have seen Benches find special reasons apply on much lower grounds than that so it might pay off.
Can I clarify anything for you?
No problem and all the best.
