Is it ever legal to drive without insurance?

A common misconception is that it’s legal to drive your car without insurance if you’re planning to buy insurance. This isn’t the case. Luckily, you can buy a policy through Genesis Insurance, so you don’t need to drive without insurance. If you insist on buying your coverage in person, you can always have a friend drive you to get covered. But you don’t want to drive without insurance.

The same goes for driving without proper registration, up to date stickers and so on. If you need to get a license plate, take your driver’s license test, or buy insurance in Phoenix, AZ, you’ll want to do that by mail, over the internet, or have a friend drive you to get the job done.

Of course, it is entirely possible that you can drive wherever it is you’re going without insurance an hope you don’t get pulled over, but you’re rolling the dice on that. You never know when you’re going to hit a traffic checkpoint, you never know when you’re going to miss a speed limit sign and get pulled over, or have an officer hit his sirens because you didn’t know your rear tail light wasn’t working. Our advice: It’s just not worth the risk. The fines you’re going to wind up paying for driving without the proper documents can get very expensive very quickly.

Buying insurance through Genesis Insurance is fast and easy, and we have plenty of options for Phoenix, AZ, and Texas drivers, so there’s no reason you should have to drive without coverage.
