During the amnesty period, expected to end Jan. 1, 2022, uninsured drivers have a chance to get new auto insurance with lower costs. If they did not get auto insurance in this amnesty period however, they could face higher costs according to the Department of Insurance and Financial Services, also known as DIFS.

I think this is the best answer for getting uninsured drivers a rate that they can afford. Studies show that the main reason that so many people drive without insurance is mainly because of costs. If you come from a low-income household you can imagine the struggles that come with paying for Michigan insurance. According to, Michigan is listed as one of the states with the highest insurance rates in the country along with other states like Florida, and New York.

Details say that you have until Dec. 31 to take advantage of these amnesty deals. Don't wait too late!
