VC 16028 a – No proof of insurance

The Consequences – One year license suspension

If you got into an accident even if it wasn’t your fault, you face a one-year license suspension if you did not have insurance at the time of the accident (VC 16028 – proof of financial responsibility).

Get a DMV Hearing

It is imperative that you request a DMV Hearing in order to try, at least, to get a restricted license so you can keep driving for work. Otherwise you face a one-year license suspension from not having insurance and getting into an accident.

The law in California: (see http://leginfo.legislature.ca.gov/faces/codes_displaySection.xhtml?lawCode=VEH&sectionNum=16028.
