A person is required to show a proof of insurance on the vehicle driven in case he/she gets pulled over by the police.

In every state, auto insurance is mandatory, and you are in compliance with the mandatory insurance law if you have vehicle liability insurance (not non-owner) in certain minimum limits.

The coverage, for example, can be very helpful in situations where the insured rents a vehicle. Also, non-owner SR22 can be beneficial in situations where people may need to comply with certain legal or contractual obligations. Some people who are required to have financial responsibility filing (SR22) but do not own a vehicle may purchase a non-owner policy with a (SR22) filing. Also, people who want to get extra protection while they are driving other people’s vehicles – friend’s vehicle- (that must also be insured) may also get non-owner coverage. Certain contractors may be required to have coverage for ‘non owned auto’ as part of a legal contract with others.
