Liability insurance covers bodily injury and property damage claims resulting from an accident that is primarily your fault. The limits in your policy are the maximum amounts your insurance company will pay for bodily injury and property damage claims. They are typically expressed as three amounts separated by slashes written as 25/50/25 or 25,000/50,000/25,000
Georgia’s law requires you to maintain liability limits of at least:
The first number is the maximum amount that your policy will pay for bodily injury to or death of one (1) person in any one (1) accident.
The maximum amount that your policy will pay for bodily injury to or death of two (2) or more persons in any one (1) accident, subject to the $15,000 per person limit.
The maximum amount that your policy will pay for injury to or destruction of property of others in an accident.
Georgia does not consider an insurance card acceptable proof of insurance coverage. Instead, law enforcement officers and other state employees are able to electronically verify the insurance status for any vehicle that is registered in Georgia using the Georgia Electronic Insurance Compliance System (GEICS). Maintaining valid insurance at all times is very important. Your insurance status may be verified under the following circumstances:
To ensure drivers continue to meet the Financial Responsibility requirements, Georgia requires insurance companies to notify the Georgia Department of Driver Services when a person buys insurance, adds or deletes a vehicle or terminates coverage. If the Department of Driver Services is advised that insurance has been terminated, they may request written proof of coverage.
Failure to maintain proper insurance could lead to the suspension or revocation of your vehicle registration. If an uninsured vehicle is detected by law enforcement or if the vehicle is involved in an accident, the owner will also be subject to fines and vehicle impoundment.
The following is required to reinstate a suspended vehicle registration:
Additional penalties may apply if the vehicle's registered owner is convicted of driving a vehicle with a suspended or canceled registration.
An SR-22 is a certification of future proof of Financial Responsibility issued by your insurance company to the state providing proof that you purchased liability insurance. The following circumstances may require a person to have an SR-22:
SafeAuto does not currently issue SR-22s in Georgia.
A vehicle's registered owner may cancel their vehicle's registration at the Tax Commissioner's office in the county in Georgia where they reside when the vehicle is not driven. The County Tax Commissioner's office accepting the cancellation request will enter the required information (date registration canceled) on the vehicle's record to stop any lapse and reinstatement fees from being assessed. To avoid lapse and reinstatement fees from being assessed, the vehicle's registered owner must cancel their vehicle's registration before or at the same time the vehicle's mandatory liability insurance coverage is canceled.
A service member, deployed on official military duty, may cancel their vehicle's registration when the vehicle is not going to be driven on the public roads and highways of Georgia during their absence. The service member should complete, sign and submit a Service Member's Affidavit for Mandatory Insurance Relief to the Tax Commissioner's office in the county in Georgia where they reside. This form may be submitted before, during or after deployment.
