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.

  • Mark works great!

    “Mark G Scheuerman is friendly and shows that he honestly cares for his clients and that its not about the money. A lot of my other experiences with lawyers have left me feeling like they just wanted to get in your pockets, Mark doesn't give you that feeling at all. Mark gives you a sense of security always checking up and you and making sure that both parties are taking the proper steps in your case. He also gives great recommendations to accommodate your appearance in court and to help you present yourself at the highest standard. On top of being friendly and very professional he gets the job done, and from my own personal experience, getting me exactly what I asked for and a lot of times, lawyers cant make that happen for you. I have the upmost respect for this man and if I ever needed a lawyer in the future I will be returning to employee this gentleman and referring any friends or family to this man. Thanks again Mark, you helped me to keep my life on track, You sir are amazing.”

  • Outstanding legal representation!

    “I was recently rear-ended on the beltway by a disbarred attorney. This person claimed that I was at fault due to road rage. The state trooper sided with the person who struck me. This resulted in 6 citations, 9 points on my driving record and $1000 in fines. If the charges would have stuck, I would have lost my license. My entire family would have been severely affected not to mention my livelihood. Thank God I chose Mark Scheuerman to represent me in court! Mark did an outstanding job examining all aspects of the charges, as well as the facts of the case. Having never experienced being in a courtroom before, he went above and beyond to prepare me for the trial. The result of his hard work was a complete acquittal. I can't speak highly enough of Attorney Scheuerman.”
