Yes, if the vehicle is registered, in most states, you must have it insured. If the officer asks for proof of insurance, you are required to show it to him. If you do not have it, he may issue you a ticket. It does not matter if the car was in motion or parked.

Yes you have to have proof of insurance.Another answer: It is required by law if you are a resident of Georgia. A non resident can have it on his person.

No there is not a website to print proof of insurance from this company. ?æWhen a person obtains it they can get the proof of insurance at the company or through the mail.?æ

yep u can hope this helped.In most states if you are over the age of 18, it is the car that is insured, not the driver. When pulled over, the police ask to see proof of car insurance, not person insurance.

There is not going to be a ticket that is issued for just a no proof of insurance. You will have to show your proof of insurance but the ticket cost will be for something else. If you cannot show your proof of insurance, you will have to go to court.

You will have to scan or make copies of your Granger insurance ID cards for proof. Another option is to take photos using your digital camera or wireless device.

VERY unlikely, especially if you have proof that you contacted your insuror. THAT is what insurance is for. Contact your insurance agent, it sounds like the other party is simply trying to 'scare' more money out of you.

No proof just means that they didn't have a proof of insurance card. That's the cut out card your insurance sends you and says "keep in your car." The requirements for each state varies, Oregon doesn't require drivers to show proof of insurance, they just have to show registration and license. If you have the ID of the driver, contact your insurance and give them all the details you can. If the driver told you an insurance they have, your insurance can contact that company and find out. Personally if someone in an accident doesn't have proof of insurance, and that also means no expired cards, I'd be towing that car and sticking them with a hefty citation.

It's proof of insurance.

If you had insurance at the time of the citation and take proof of insuranc to the judge, he will USUALLY dismiss the ticket. Unfortunately, you will have to appear in person to do that, and there is no guarantee that it will be dismissed, so be respectful to the judge. Absolutely. You're required to have proof of insurance with at all times while operating a motor vehicle. However, that ticket is usually dismissed after you show proof of insurance to the court.

Your insurance company will give you a insurance card with all of the information needed for proof of insurance. Show that to whoever is interested.

The ticket will only get dropped if you have proof that you HAD insurance at the time of the ticket had been issued. You may get the ticket fine lowered with proof that you now have the required insurance.

An sr22 is a proof of insurance, particularly car insurance. It is important to have an sr22, otherwise, you can get a ticket driving because you have no proof of car insurance.

No proof of insurance on the vehicle. Just because you have one car with insurance does not mean that you are covered on any vehicle that you drive. Your best bet is to add the vehicle to your policy, go to court, show them you now have proof of insurance, and you should be okay then.

It means you have proof that you have insurance and it can be verified.

Beyond having the correct insurance for your country or state you do not need proof financial responsibility.Another View: I would NOT RELY on the above answer! Every state I am familiar with, REQUIRES that you be able to show proof of insurance when asked. It is a fineable violation if you fail to display it.

Go to court with proof of insurance stating it was in effect on the date of the violation.

It may depend on the state the vehicle is registered in. In California, proof of insurance is required in order to register a vehicle, which is done when you purchase a car, and you need a license when purchasing auto insurance. I know in California that dealership wouldn't be able to transfer title to a person who doesn't have insurance since the DMV would require proof. Ask a dealership in your state for specific requirements.

There is no grace period. Legally you can not drive a car on public roads without proof of financial responsibility. If you bought a cash car your supposed to leave it parked until you get your insurance and your registration. If you have purchased and financed a new car, most finance companies require proof of full coverage before you can drive it off the lot.

go to traffic court and take your proof of insurance with you. this will prove to the judge that you have insurance and they will usually remove that part of the ticket.

Yes, they require proof that the person who is insured has died.
