Showing Proof of Insurance (by DaytonDUI)

November 15th, 2012 by DaytonDUI Leave a reply »

Ohio law requires all license holders to carry insurance on the vehicles they drive—and requires the Clerk’s Office to report the status of your insurance when you are cited to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles. If you do not submit the required proof, your driver’s license will be suspended and you may be subject to additional fees and insurance sanctions.

Please check the area on your citation that says “Financial Responsibility Proof Shown.” Make sure the “Y” box is checked. If you did not show proof when you were cited or if the officer did not mark “Y” to indicate you showed proof of insurance, please bring in, mail or fax your proof of insurance to the Clerk of Court’s Office at the court where your case will be heard. Please write your ticket number or court case number on the proof when you send it in. If you do not have access to a fax machine, ask your insurance agent to fax in the proof and then call the Clerk’s Office to make sure they received it.  If the court does not receive your proof of insurance, the court will be required to send a “no insurance shown” status to the Ohio Bureau of Motor Vehicles—which could result in a license suspension under Ohio law.  A copy of your insurance card showing that your insurance was in effect on the date you received your citation and the name of your insurance company, or a statement from your insurance company with this information is what you will need to provide as proof that you were insured on the date of your violation.
