Driving without Insurance

Not all states are created equal when it comes to car insurance laws , but all states require drivers to carry insurance or some form of financial responsibility , such as a self-insurance certificate, bond or other money deposit . No matter where you live, driving without insurance or financial responsibility is against the law.

Getting caught driving without car insurance can hold some hefty consequences . Penalties vary by state, but include:

Driver’s license suspension

  • Vehicle registration suspension
  • Tickets for no insurance
  • Jail time
  • Civil and criminal penalties if in an accident
  • Most states issue fines that range from $100 to $1,000
  • Having to meet SR22 requirements for 3 to 5 years
