Uninsured drivers in Texas
According to a recent report from the Insurance Research Council (IRC), 15 percent of Texas drivers drive without car insurance.
Consider adding some type of uninsured motorist coverage to your policy. That way you can financially protect yourself from paying out of pocket after an accident you didn't cause.
No proof of insurance
Those who are convicted of driving without car insurance may be fined $175 to $350 for a first offense.
Cancellation of policy
If you've had a policy for 60 days or more, your coverage can be canceled by your insurance company if you don't pay your premium, file a fraudulent claim, or get your license or registration suspended.
Texas car insurance rating factors
Most insurance companies (including us) typically use your age and driving experience, your driving record and claim history, your ZIP Code, your car's make and model, how frequently you drive, recent gaps in insurance coverage, and your credit-based insurance score to calculate your premium.
Alternative insurance options
If you're considered a high-risk driver because of serious traffic convictions like DWIs or for other reasons, you may have difficulty getting auto insurance from regular insurance companies. If 2 or more car insurance companies have refused to insure you, you may be able to get insurance through the Texas Automobile Insurance Plan Association (TAIPA).
