Driving Without Insurance Defense

In Missouri, it is illegal for an individual to drive a vehicle without insurance. During a traffic stop -- for speeding, reckless driving, drunk driving, etc. -- if the driver fails to show proof of insurance, he or she may face serious consequences:

  • Points on license: Driving without insurance will lead to four points on your license. Too many points (8 within 18 months) can lead to license suspension.
  • Order of supervision: This may be done to ensure that the driver is maintaining auto insurance.
  • License suspension: The driver's license may be suspended for a specific period of time.

Going forward, the driver must show proof of insurance to the Department of Revenue for a period of three years. Failing to show proof of insurance during this time can lead to an additional period of license suspension.
