Driving Without Insurance Or A License
Poughkeepsie Drivers License Attorney
The state of New York requires every driver to be insured for injury or
property damage to others. Driving without insurance is a serious traffic

higher insurance rates.
If you were accused of driving without insurance or driving without a license,
The Law Office of Kelley M. Enderley, PC in Poughkeepsie can intervene
to get you back in compliance and address any criminal penalties or administrative
sanctions against your driver's license.

Driving Without Insurance in New York
Typically, the police officer or state trooper discovers has pulled you
over for speeding or some other traffic offense or equipment violation.
A check of DMV records reveals that your auto insurance has lapsed or
that your license is not valid. While some people knowingly drive without
insurance or knowingly drive while suspended, you may not have been aware
that you were out of compliance.
Attorney Kelley M. Enderley practices regularly in traffic courts in Hudson
Valley and surrounding jurisdictions. Her first goal is to get rid of
the insurance ticket to avoid fines and license suspension. We often convince
insurance brokers to backdate the policy to satisfy the court that coverage
is in force. We can then get the violation dismissed.
Sometimes clients have violations for no insurance and/or no valid license
as well as some traffic violation. We work to get one or more offenses
dropped, or to combine the tickets into one.
Experienced Defense for License and Insurance Violations
Driving without valid insurance is punishable by license revocation and
a fine of up to $1,500, plus hundreds of dollars to reinstate driving
privileges, and driving without a valid license is also a major offense.
Insurers will see that driver as high-risk and jack up the person's
rates. Hiring a lawyer to fix this is definitely cost-effective.
