If you drive a car in the state of Georgia, you need to carry insurance. It’s an expensive thing to do, but it’s the law.
Some financial planners recommend that you should have your insurance premiums paid automatically out of your bank account. The reason is there are stiff penalties for allowing your insurance to lapse. If you don’t pay your bill on time, you won’t have your insurance.
While some creditors allow you to string along and make late payments (and pay late payment fees), car insurance is not that way. Car insurance is not credit. You either have it or you don’t.
If your insurance lapses in Georgia, you risk having your cost of insurance go up. Not only that, but there is a stiff penalty for going without auto insurance for even ten days. That penalty will show up when you go to renew your license plates. If you let it happen three times, penalties get even stiffer. The bottom line is pay your insurance premiums on time.
