Is it illegal to drive without auto insurance in Illinois?

It's expensive to purchase car insurance in my zip code and I'm trying to save money to buy a house. What happens if I forego insurance?

“Choosing to forego car insurance in Illinois could cost you more in the long run.
Penalties for being caught without insurance include:
  • a fine of $500–$1000
  • license suspension
  • a reinstatement fee of $100
  • an SR22 car insurance certificate that you must maintain for up to three years or more
While not paying monthly premiums may seem like a shortcut to saving money, the costs are substantial. If you’re looking for cheap car insurance in Illinois, Jerry can help you compare rates and find the best deals.”
