Department of Motor Vehicles

Uninsured Vehicles (Follow-Up Review)

In our prior audit report 98-S-4, we examined the actions taken by the Department of Motor Vehicles to ensure that vehicles registered in New York State are covered by liability insurance, as is required by law. We found that many insurers were not properly notifying the Department when a vehicle’s insurance coverage was terminated, as is required by law. We recommended that the Department be more active in its efforts to identify and follow up on uninsured vehicles. In our follow-up review, we found that the Department had generally implemented the recommendations contained in our prior report.
