If your driver's license has been suspended, do you have to get it reinstated before you can qualify for car insurance?

My driver's license was suspended a while back. Is reinstatement required to get car insurance?

“Thanks for your question! If you have a suspended license, the majority of insurance companies won’t provide you with coverage until it’s reinstated.
With a suspended license, you’ll be deemed too high-risk for insurers to take on. Unfortunately, insuring you before reinstating your licence is dangerous.
When you do get your license reinstated, be sure to shop around for insurance. You may face higher rates since your license was suspended, but that doesn’t mean you have to break the bank to pay for coverage.
