In New York State, motorists have to have auto insurance. This is the state law that applies to every motorist. They are also required to carry liability insurance to cover the expense of the vehicle and anyone they may injure in an unfortunate accident. Your vehicle must also have ‘no-fault’ coverage for underinsured and uninsured motorists. Contact The Glass Law Group if you have a received a ticket while driving without insurance.
Violation VTL 31901 (uninsured motorist) is when your auto insurance lapses. A driver’s auto insurance premium that is not paid will result in a lapse of insurance. Despite what you might think, it is not the responsibility of thinking DMV to notify anyone who does not pay their insurance premium. Also, you may not receive a notice from your insurance company until they have already reported a lapse in your insurance to the DMV. A suspended license is often the result of unpaid premiums.
Whatever you do, don’t panic or plead guilty to driving without insurance. Instead, contact The Glass Law Group where our attorneys can help you avoid the serious charges that you might receive. Driving without insurance could result in your license being revoked for at least a year. A motorist found driving without insurance will have to pay for a Driving Assessment, which is generally $750.
