What happens if I drive without insurance in Indiana?

My brother told me recently he doesn't have car insurance on his vehicle registered in Indiana. What are the legal and financial implications if he gets caught?

“Indiana requires all registered vehicles and drivers to maintain a car insurance policy.
Failure to maintain a policy could result in:
  • a 90-day driver’s license suspension
  • the requirement of carrying an SR-22 car insurance certificate that you must keep for three years
The second offense results in a $500 fine and a one-year license suspension along with the SR-22 requirement. The third and any subsequent offenses for will result in a $1000 reinstatement fee, a license suspension for one year, and an SR22 requirement for five years.
