Proof of Insurance & Financial Responsibility
State of Ohio law requires that everyone must provide proof of insurance when requested by a law enforcement officer.
If you did not provide proof of insurance to the law enforcement officer at the time of your offense, you must bring proof of insurance for the date of your offense to your court appearance or enclose proof with your payment.
Proof of insurance is required on the vehicle that you were driving on the date and time you were cited. Failure to provide proof of insurance will result in the suspension of your driving rights for a period of not less than 90 days through the Bureau of Motor Vehicles.
