Proof of Financial Responsibility & Penalties
Under Kentucky law, you must provide proof of Financial Responsibility in the following circumstances:
- At the request of a law enforcement officer at the time of an accident or traffic stop
- When registering a vehicle
To ensure drivers continue to meet the Financial Responsibility requirements, Kentucky also requires insurers to electronically report all of their active policies on a monthly basis.
Penalty for Failure to Comply with Kentucky's Financial Responsibility Requirements:
Failure to maintain proper insurance could lead to the loss of your vehicle plates and suspension of your driver's license. If a law enforcement officer stops you, you may face a fine of $500-$1,000, be sentenced to ninety (90) days in jail, or both.
