- Frequently Asked Questions Regarding Maine Auto Insurance
What does Uninsured Motorist cover?
Uninsured Motorist pays you or your passengers for medical, rehabilitation, and funeral costs. It also pays settlements of lawsuits resulting from an accident caused by an uninsured, underinsured or hit-and-run motorist
What is SR22 Insurance?
SR22 is a document often required by a state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) proving that a driver is carrying the state’s required minimum amount of vehicle liability insurance.
SR22s are typically needed for a driver to reinstate their driving privileges after an offense such as a DUI conviction or uninsured auto accident. Drivers who do not own a vehicle but still wish to reinstate their driving privileges may need to provide a non-owner SR22 policy.
What are the consequences for driving without insurance in Maine?
The consequences for driving without insurance can include suspension of your driver’s license and registration for up to 30 days along with fines up $500.
