In Georgia, driving without car insurance is a disastrous decision leading to high reinstatement fees, revoked driving privileges, possible jail time, and skyrocketing monthly premiums.
Penalties for a driver’s first offense are severe. Expect a 60-day license and registration suspension along with a $25 lapse fee and a $60 reinstatement fee. Second offenses see the same lapse fee and reinstatement fee. However, your driver’s license and registration suspension bump to 90 days, three times as long as a first offense.
Third and subsequent offenses will see a $25 lapse fee, a $160 reinstatement fee, and a six-month driver’s license and registration suspension.
On top of fees and suspended driver’s license/registration, serious offenders can face an up-to-12 month jail sentence, depending on the situation.
