No Proof of Insurance Conviction
Your operator’s license and/or operating privileges will be automatically suspended when you have been convicted/found guilty of a citation for No Proof of Insurance. Citations for No Proof of Insurance are given to the owner of the vehicle – therefore:
If you did not own the vehicle you were driving, DO NOT plead guilty to the ticket.
1. File proof of financial responsibility, which is to remain on file for three (3) years from the date of the citation/violation. This is normally provided in the form of a SR-22 Certificate of Insurance. Failure to comply with this requirement would result in the suspension of the operating privileges for an Insurance Cancellation.
2. Pay a $50.00 reinstatement fee. Payment must be in the form of a cashier’s check or money order made payable to the Department of Motor Vehicles or online with MasterCard, Visa or Discover. When submitting payment, include identifying information (i.e. name, date of birth, license or social security number and current mailing address). Payment submitted by personal or business checks or not for the required amount will be returned.
If there was insurance on the vehicle when the citation was issued, provide this office with a copy of the citation issued and have your insurance company provide this office with a letter of verification. This letter must be on the insurance company’s (or agency’s) letterhead and signed by an authorized representative of the company (including the title of the position they hold with the company). The letter will need to indicate all the information that would be on the insurance card, and it must state you were covered with insurance when the citation was issued.
Upon receipt of these documents – the Department of Motor Vehicles will review the file and possibly withdraw the suspension from your record.
