Yes! If you've received a warning letter from the IL SOS, please share your reference number with us after signing up for your policy. Our team will happily submit your new policy information to the DMV for update. If you owe a $100 reinstatement fee to the IL Secretary of State's office, we'll let you know that, too.
If you have a Hugo Flex plan, you'll always be protected from these checks so long as you turn on your insurance at least once per week. You can read more about turning on once per week - and our Registration Protection feature - here.
