Vehicle Insurance Requirements

On the page find information on insurance requirements for operating a vehicle in Georgia. Motor vehicle owners and lessees are required by law to maintain continuous Georgia automobile liability insurance coverage on vehicles with an active registration.

  • Failure to maintain insurance coverage will result in penalties including fines and possibly suspension of the vehicle registration.
  • Driving a vehicle while the registration is suspended, revoked, or canceled is a criminal offense, and may result in the vehicle being impounded.  Additional penalties will apply if convicted of driving a vehicle with a suspended or canceled registration.
  • If the vehicle is inoperable or otherwise not in service, cancel the vehicle registration BEFORE canceling insurance to avoid any potential fines or penalties.
