Yes, you can get car insurance with a suspended license if you have a hardship license to drive to work, school, and medical appointments. Or, some car insurance companies may be willing to insure your car against non-collision damage —theft, fire, flood, vandalism, falling objects, etc.—if you turn in your plates and store the vehicle for as long as your driver's license is suspended.
You may have to shop around for coverage. If your insurance company doesn’t issue high-risk policies, they may cancel or refuse to renew your coverage. Smaller, regional companies and insurers that focus on drivers other companies don’t like to cover, such as The General, are more likely to insure you while your license is suspended.
Before your suspension ends, you will need to have liability coverage and any other state-required insurance again, under your name. The court or state may require you to submit an SR-22 form certifying that you have at least the state’s minimum insurance requirements. Only an insurance company can submit this form, when you purchase insurance, and not all companies will. Once again, you may need to look around, but some major national insurers do offer SR-22 insurance and service, including State Farm, Progressive and GEICO.
