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].

Yep, definitely a money making scam. What's the name of the contractor the state is letting profit off their ineptitude?

Do we really think people who won't pay for insurance, will pay the $174? Do we really think that taking $174 from the people who would pay for insurance, but don't have enough money to pay for insurance, will help them pay for insurance?

I hate uninsured motorists as much as anyone, but the real scofflaws don't even register their vehicles. They go buy a POS from a "buy here, pay here" lot and drive around on paper tags for as long as they can get away with it. And with as many of them as I see rolling with paper tags that are so old they're unreadable, they're getting away with it. Something happens to the car or it gets towed for no registration? They just strip everything out of the car and abandon it, then go get another one and start all over again.

If the state government is saying you are driving illegal and you're not, the state should make it easier to prove you're gtg, not harder. And if your insurance carrier can't even be bothered to notify they state that you have valid insurance, do you really think they're going to be there for you when you file a claim? Tell them to fix THEIR issue or cancel them and file a complaint with the insurance commission. Then get someone who can do the job right.

Friend had a neighbor that drove around with a paper tag for more than a year (kept changing dates). I'm almost sure he didn't have insurance either. Police should impound the vehicle for no insurance.

They‘re supposed to be cited and the vehicle impounded. It’s too frequently ignored. While I was out today I counted seven that were out of date and two of those were over five months out of date.

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.

Send a copy of your current valid proof of insurance card to their return address. Have it notarized beforehand, and send it First Class Certified Mail with return proof of delivery and signature confirmation. Also, tell 'em to "Go **** Yourself and your state records." That last part may not have to be notarized. :) :) :)

Cops are going call to call with three to five already in the queue. When was the last time you saw an OKC cop cruiser running radar.

The only radar I’ve seen since they disbanded the traffic division are the motor Jocks. Some cops are just outright lazy and don’t do anything. I had two doctor office visits in the same building in one week in NW Okc. While I was there I saw an Okc police car way back in the far corner of the parking lot of the business next door under a shade tree. I was there for over two hours and he never moved from that spot. When I came back for the second visit, I saw him again. I asked the nurse about it and she said he was always there in the same spot every day.

Must be some special tree to require guarding on a daily basis. Chinese Elm?

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.
That happened to me years ago. It was a bummer.
