The 79th Texas Legislature, Regular Session, passed Senate Bill 1670, which amended Chapter 601 of the Transportation Code by adding Subchapter N, which is entitled "Financial Responsibility Verification Program." Section 601.452 of the Transportation Code, as added by SB 1670, provides that the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI), in consultation with the Texas Department of Public Safety (DPS), the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles (TxDMV) and the Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) "shall establish a program for verification of whether owners of motor vehicles have established financial responsibility."
According to SB 1670, the program established must be the program most likely to reduce the number of uninsured motorists in this State; operate reliably; be cost-effective; sufficiently protect the privacy of the motor vehicle owners; sufficiently safeguard the security and integrity of information provided by insurance companies; identify and employ a method of compliance that improves public convenience; provide information that is accurate and current; and be capable of being audited by an independent auditor.
With a goal to reduce the number of uninsured motorists in this State, the implementing agencies believe the combination of an event based verification process with an ongoing verification process will produce the most significant results.
Event Based Process: An event based process will allow State Users to obtain accurate and timely insurance information on a given vehicle promptly upon request. Users include the Texas Law Enforcement Telecommunications System (TLETS), TxDMV, and future authorized users.
Ongoing Verification Process: An ongoing verification process will monitor and report on the financial responsibility of Texas drivers on an ongoing basis.
"TexasSure: Vehicle Insurance Verification" was selected as the program name. For additional information, please visit www.TexasSure.com.
