Failure to Maintain Insurance

Requesting a Dismissal
Insurance (Fail to Maintain Financial Responsibility)
To request a dismissal, you must submit the following proof of insurance within 20 business days of the date you were cited:
  • A valid policy of vehicle liability insurance before the date of the offense
  • A valid driver's license
  • Information provided on the insurance policy identification card must contain:
    • Name, address, and telephone number of the insured
    • Name, address, and telephone number of the insurance company (insurer)
    • Policy number
    • Effective and expiration dates of the policy
If these conditions are met then the offense can be dismissed at no charge. Be advised that few, if any, insurance companies will assume liability if an unlicensed driver is operating the vehicle. Therefore, unlicensed drivers are almost always excluded in an insurance policy.
