The discover will checklist the potential fines for driving uninsured and advise repeat offenders they face suspension of driving privileges.
The non-compliance notices are going out as a part of the TexasSure Uninsured Motorists Verification program handed by the 79th Legislature. The regulation requires insurers to submit their energetic policyholder data to the state, who in flip matches the submitted Car Identification Numbers (VIN) with the VINs contained within the registered car database at TxDMV.

One in 4 are Uninsured

In June of 2008, entry to the TexasSure program was supplied to DPS officers and all 254 county tax workplaces.
