Driving Without Proof of Insurance

Illinois law requires drivers to be covered by a liability insurance policy. More specifically, Illinois motorists must carry at least $20,000 in liability insurance for one person's bodily injury or death, $40,000 for multiple bodily injuries or deaths, and $15,000 for property damage. In addition to maintaining a current insurance policy, drivers must also carry proof of insurance with them. Illinois law mandates that all drivers carry proof of insurance when operating a motor vehicle. Failure to present proof of insurance can result in fines ranging up to $1,000 and suspension of your driver's license. You can be charged even if you left your insurance card at home or your insurance company failed to mail you a new card once the old expired.
