Knowingly Driving Without Insurance

Get Experienced Legal Help from Our Baltimore Traffic Ticket Attorneys

Maryland requires all vehicles to be ensured to protect state driver’s in the event of an accident—with the minimum amounts being $30,000 for bodily injury per person, $60,000 bodily injury per crash, and $15,000 for property damage. If an uninsured motorist is involved in a collision with another driver, not only may they be financially responsible for any corresponding damages and injuries, but they also face criminal charges for knowingly driving without insurance.

If you have been charged with driving without insurance in Baltimore, The Law Office of Mark G. Scheuerman is ready to help you avoid the criminal penalties you face. In order for the prosecution to prove your guilt, they must have proof that you were aware the vehicle was insured. There are many legal defenses available. Our legal team could assess your case, determine which defenses apply to your case, and help you get the most favorable results.

Penalties for Driving Without Insurance in Maryland

Driving without insurance in Maryland is a misdemeanor crime. This means not only do you have to pay expensive fines if convicted, but you may also be sentenced to jail or get your driver’s license revoked.

For a first-time offense, a conviction is punishable by a maximum one-year jail term, a fine not exceeding $1,000, and five points on your driving record. For a second offense, a conviction carries a jail sentence of up to two years, a maximum $2,000 fine, and another five points on your license, which could lead to license suspension.

If you forget to renew your insurance, you could face costly administrative fines from the MVA—even if you don’t receive a ticket for driving without insurance. Insurance lapse penalties include losing your driver’s license and/or vehicle registration, fees of $150 for the first 30 days then $7 for each day of the lapse (at a maximum $2,500), a $25 fee for restoring your vehicle’s registration, and other penalties.

  • Excellent results - Highly recommended - would use again

    “Mark Scheuerman represented me for a traffic violation in Harford County. Facing 5 points, a large fine, plus living over 100 miles away from the incident court, I decided to hire an attorney to represent me. The cost of Mark's representation more than offset what I would have paid for increased auto insurance premiums for the years to come. Despite Harford being one of the toughest courts on traffic violations and a previous conviction on my record, Mark was able to get me probation before judgment (PBJ), which means zero points! My fine was also significantly reduced. Another huge plus was I didn't even need to attend my trial which prevented missing a full day off work and 200+ mile round trip. If I get another traffic violation in the Baltimore area I will definitely be calling again. Thanks.”

    “I'm a business professional who felt like they had everything to lose. Minutes after meeting Mark, I knew he was the right attorney to help me through this trying time. Mark has a great reputation and good rapport with not only the judges and prosecutors but often the police officers as well. Based on the individual circumstances of my case, Mark laid out plan for me to complete prior to my court date. The end result could not have been more favorable and far exceeded my expectations. I highly recommend hiring Mark Scheuerman.”
