Insurance violations

Your insurance violation (VC §16028(a)) may be dismissed or the fine may be reduced if you can provide proof you had valid insurance at the time the citation was issued.

  • If your insurance was valid on the date of the violation, the charge will be dismissed with a $25 correction fee.
  • If you obtained insurance after the date of the violation, your fine may be reduced.
  • If you do not provide proof of insurance, you must pay the full fine.
Submitting Proof of Insurance

Your insurance card or insurance policy must contain the following information:

  • Insured's name
  • Policy number
