New Jersey Driving Without Insurance Attorney
New Jersey law requires that all drivers have the state’s minimum insurance for their vehicles. If a person is found to be driving without insurance, he or she may be charged as an uninsured driver, subject to serious legal penalties including up to $300 in fines in addition to loss of license and mandatory community service. Repeat offenses could result in more severe consequences such as higher fines.

New Jersey Insurance Requirements
New Jersey requires a minimum amount of vehicle insurance for every driver but encourages more than the minimum. Either the vehicle’s title owner or the main driver of the vehicle is held responsible for obtaining the minimum liability insurance.
Consequences of Driving without Insurance
If a driver is found to have failed in this responsibility, he or she could face legal consequences. The “basic” New Jersey requirements for insurance include:
- $15,000 per person for injuries
- A maximum of $250,000 for specific, severe injuries
- $5,000 for property damage
Every driver in New Jersey is required to have at least this amount of coverage, although this is below the “standard” level of coverage recommended by the state.
