A producer is the common term in Britain for the request by the police to present documents at a local police station, having been stopped while driving without documents earlier. The form issued is a HO/RT1. Under the Road Traffic Act (1988) it is an offence to drive without certain documents, but it is reasonable to present them as soon as possible thereafter. The required documents - driving licence, insurance certificate and MOT certificate must be produced at a police station within seven days. Failure to produce the documents in a timely manner can result in a fine.
