No insurance court date

I have my court date coming up and still haven't figured out one thing.

If the prosecution cannot prove that I did not have insurance on that day I was charged then am I found not guilty? Or is the onus on me to prove that I did have insurance?

Appreciate any replies!

It's a reverse onus offence, meaning you must prove that you were insured. The Crown needs only show that you were the owner of the vehicle being operated.
