Anybody else receive one of these letters? This is the second time I have received one and they claim I don't have insurance. The only way to solve the issue is to have your insurance agent log into their special site (okivs.com) and have them log into an account there. My insurance agent doesn't have an account for their website and I can't even talk to anybody on the phone about this "violation." They just have an automated system that is basically useless for anything other than giving them money. They attached a photo of my vehicle tag as well.

They make it impossible to contest the issue if your insurance agent doesn't have access to their system and expect me to pay $174 because their machine made a mistake. Really would like to know if anybody else has had to deal with this and has any solutions.

most likely a scam. I’d file it in the trash bin.
Sadly, it's an actual government approved program. Now, it is definitely a scam, but either way, you have to follow up if you get one of these notices. On the first go around last year with a different vehicle, I eventually got a hold of a real person and they tossed it out after I sent proof of insurance. This time, it seems they have removed the option to talk to a human and trust the automated system to take credit card numbers because that is all they care about.

Their website is Oklahoma UVED Program - Resolve Notice. Get Insured.

Yeah, I saw that option as well, @KOPBET. I tried to sign up but it is limited to insurance agents only. My insurance doesn't feel like it is their job to have to deal with an error in this govt system so they basically said best of luck.

At the bottom in bold italics it says to email them the pertinent data.




** UVED payments are NOT accepted at the DAC Office. If you have UVED-related questions, call (405) 806-8833.**

The Uninsured Vehicle Enforcement Diversion (UVED) Program is a statewide initiative aimed at reducing the number of uninsured vehicles on Oklahoma roadways.

Nationwide studies have estimated up to 26 percent of vehicles traveling on Oklahoma roads are uninsured, and due to revenue challenges, individual law enforcement agencies and district attorneys find it difficult to enforce Oklahoma’s Compulsory Insurance Law in an efficient manner.

Thus, the purpose of the UVED Program is to divert cases of insurance non-compliance away from the Court system. Although owners of vehicles found to be operating without the requisite coverage could be charged with a misdemeanor, this program seeks to keep Oklahomans away from criminal proceedings, by notifying the owners of uninsured vehicles of the potential for charges before law enforcement intervenes.

Since November 1, 2018, the UVED Program has deployed camera units across the state, taking photographs of license plates and comparing them to the Oklahoma Insurance Verification System (OKIVS). License plates associated with a valid personal line of insurance are immediately rejected; all other photographs are forwarded to the DAC for review.

The goal of the UVED Program is to deploy camera units in all jurisdictions of Oklahoma. While UVED technology produces hundreds of thousands of images, all data collected by the UVED Program is retained solely by the program, and is retained only for as long as it’s being used as evidence of a violation; when the data is no longer needed, it is deleted or destroyed.

Owners of vehicles believed to be in violation of the Compulsory Insurance Law receive a Notice from the UVED Program that contains a copy of the photographs taken as well as instructions on how to proceed. Individuals willing to enroll in the UVED Program acquire liability coverage, pay a $174.00 enrollment fee, and promise to maintain that coverage for a period of two (2) years.

Due to the way that insurance policies are reported by carriers/brokers, vehicle owners with insurance policies in good standing may still receive a "Notice to Respond". These rare occurrences are easily rectified by contacting the insurance carrier/broker (as listed on the insurance card), who will make the necessary adjustments on the Oklahoma Insurance Verification System (www.OKIVS.com), using the Notice number received.

Citizens believing they are otherwise not liable may provide documentation to the UVED Program via web portal or telephone, as indicated on the notice, or by email to [email protected]

My old insurance agent reported that I had no insurance on a car after I sold it and my license was suspended without me knowing. So I drove around with suspended license for a couple of months until I received a letter from DPS advising me that the license was suspended. I went to DPS and the rude receptionist tried to incite me because she laid into me but I ignored her. I got my license back after I had the car dealer that had my old car write. letter that I carried to DPS. It does happen.

Never heard of it. Where are the cameras for this? Given the reported number of uninsured drivers this is probably a good money maker for them.

And if my agent told me to bug off on this, I'd be gone in a flash.

The cameras are usually mounted on the roof of a car that prowls big box retail stores parking lots. I knew a few guys that didn't have insurance --- they'd always back into a parking spot behind another car so the cameras couldn't see their plates.
