What happens to your drivers license when you are at fault in an auto accident and you do not have car insurance?

dl suspension for one yr and your going to need an sr22 for 3 yrs.. its not good You probably will be arrested and if you are unable to pay the costs in full to the victim(s) you may be looking at some deep jail time, your driver license can actually be suspended for anywhere from 1- to TEN years depending on what state you live in but if the damages aren't paid, forget about ever seeing your picture on a license again. By the way, the 3-7 period a SR-22 is required starts when you are released from jail and your license is reinstated, not the day of the accident.
