Proof of Insurance
NEW Process Effective July 1, 2010
If you have been charged with "No proof of Insurance" (not having documentation regarding your insurance in the vehicle when you are stopped), you have until your court date to provide that proof to court administration. If an officer did not give you a court date on your citation, you have 30 days from the date the citation was issued to provide the proof to court administration. You must bring or mail in documentation from your insurance agent reflecting that you had valid insurance on that particular vehicle on the date in question. The documentation you provide will be reviewed and may be verified by calling your insurance company. If accepted, the charge will be dismissed in the case management system. You should verify the status of your case on www.mncourts.gov prior to your court date.
The proof of insurance can be mailed to:
Minnesota Court Payment Center
P.O. Box 898
Willmar, MN 56201
If Your License has been Suspended
If you do not provide proof of insurance prior to your court date, Minnesota Driver and Vehicle Services (DVS) will be notified and will suspend your driver's license. Their action is independent of the court status of your ticket. Bringing your documentation to court does not make you valid to drive. If you provide valid proof of insurance to the court after your license has been suspended, you must contact DVS to find out if there is anything else you need to do before your license is reinstated.
If you are charged with any other offenses in conjunction with the no proof of insurance charge, you must pay those fines, by the court date, or appear in court as required (see Traffic Fines).
