“In Virginia, you’re not legally required to buy car insurance. However, if you choose to drive uninsured, you have to pay a $500 uninsured motor vehicle fee to the DMV.
If you get into an at-fault car accident without insurance, you’ll be left footing the bill for all the damages and injuries. If you can’t afford to pay for the other driver’s expenses, you could have your wages garnished or be hit with a lawsuit. “
