Default Mandatory insurance verification? Anyone else have this?

Secretary of State mailed me a mandatory insurance verification to make sure I have liability insurance on my 83 Bonn. Back of the card says they suspend my license if I haven't replied in 30 days. I just got new plates for while she was out of storage during Decemberish. She'* back in now.

Of course, they want to know if I had liability insurance on Feb 11th...I put "no" and explained why. Now I get to be paranoid that they'll suspend it anyway because I don't have insurance on that one...only on my Lumina.

Has anyone else gotten one of these?

Yeah. I got one several months ago. A simple YES applied for my car, so...

Not quite the same thing here but similar. Every time we renew our vehicle registration (usually annually), we must present proof of insurance or we don't get a new license plate sticker. I've never known a request here to be made by mail.

Mine said I was randomly selected and response was mandatory. They called twice because I took so long to send it back.

here in MI, you must have proof of insurance in order to renew or register a plate. so basically, they check once a year.

but there is a loop hole. they recently started (i think starting last year) letting you renew over their web site. and you dont need insurance info.

Ah, alrighty. Thanks all, that'* just the first I'd seen or heard of this. It'd make more sense to me if they checked it when I got registration...I even had my proof of insurance with me both times, but they didn't ask for it. I'm glad they do check things like this, their method just seems a little...odd.

here in MA you need to provide proof or insurance before registering the vehicle. you cant register without a document from the insurance company
