Proof of Financial Responsibility & Penalties
Under Idaho law, you are required to provide documentary proof of financial responsibility when registering your vehicle or at the request of law enforcement officials.
Car insurance companies are required to notify the Idaho transportation department whenever a policy is issued or terminates for any reason.
If you are unable to produce proof of liability coverage when requested, the penalties can be harsh, with fines ranging from $75 to $1,000, and possible imprisonment for up to six months.
In addition to these statutory penalties, if you cannot show proof of financial responsibility, fail to pay a judgment entered against you for damages resulting from an automobile accident, or need to reinstate your license after conviction for certain types of violations, you will be required to obtain an SR-22 Certificate of Financial Responsibility.
