What Happens If You Get Caught Driving Without Insurance?

In most states, if you are pulled over for the first time and you have no insurance, there will be a fine. In California, for example, you’ll pay close to $500 for a first offense. In addition, other states, such as Florida, will suspend your driver’s license and registration and require significant fees to have them reinstated.

In some states, including California, the police officer who pulls you over has the right to impound your vehicle immediately if he or she deems it necessary. You would then be responsible for towing fees and other costs involved and might not be able to get your car back until you have proof of insurance.

Although it’s unlikely to happen with a first offense, most states also reserve the right to jail you for driving without insurance.

Once you’ve been dinged for not having insurance, your rates to be insured will rise significantly because you are considered an at-risk driver. You won’t be eligible for clean record discounts and may see annual premiums in the four-digit range.
