Insurance Violations

Failure to Carry Proof of Insurance

If you have been cited for Failure to Carry Proof of Insurance, you may come to the court office prior to your court date. Show the clerk valid proof of compliance including financial responsibility requirements at the time of the violation. 

The clerk will verify the proof is valid by contacting the listed insurer.  If valid proof is confirmed, the charge will be dismissed.  If you cannot provide valid proof of coverage at the time of the violation but have since acquired insurance, the fine may be reduced based on your driving record.

Driving Uninsured

If you were cited for Driving Uninsured, but are now able to provide valid proof of insurance, the fine may be reduced based upon your driving record.  If you submit valid proof to the court you were in compliance with the financial responsibility requirements at the time of the violation, the driving uninsured charge may be dismissed.  The court will call the listed insurer to confirm the policy is valid before the fine is reduced or the charge dismissed.  DMV may require an SR-22 for this conviction.

In either case please wait at least one week after being cited to ensure your citation has been received by the court.  If you plead Not Guilty, the matter will be set for trial.
