Penalties for Driving Without Auto Insurance in Virginia
Virginia is one of the few states that doesn’t require citizens to have auto insurance to legally drive. If you opt out of car insurance, you must pay the $500 Uninsured Motor Vehicle (UMV) fee every time your vehicle registration expires. Be aware that this fee doesn’t provide you with any insurance coverage.
If you don’t pay for auto insurance or the UMV fee, serious penalties may occur. These punishments include a Class 3 misdemeanor conviction, a fine up to $500, and a driver’s license and license plate suspension. You may also need to file an SR-22 form — a certificate proving to the state you have auto insurance — for three years.
