Failure to provide proof of auto insurance is a fineable offense. If you don’t have car insurance, your driver’s license could get suspended and your vehicle impounded. After suspension, you must file and maintain proof of car insurance with the California Department of Motor Vehicles for three years. Insurance companies will send you a card to show proof of car insurance, so be sure to keep it in your vehicle to avoid these consequences.
