Before You Spend Hours Calling All Over Town, Ask Yourself These Questions
Who does my agent work for?
A captive agent or direct writer works for the company they sell. As an Independent Insurance Agency, Dan Burghardt Insurance works for you!
Why would I use an independent agent?
Because captive agents and direct writers like State Farm, Allstate, GEICO, and Safe Auto have very limited price, payment, and coverage choices to offer. They sell only one company, at one price, with one or two payment plans.
Do I want to buy from a big national company where I’ll be just a number?
It’s fine, of course, if your comfortable with that. But if you are more comfortable buying local, Dan Burghardt Insurance is your local agent, and has been for over 25 years.
Why would I waste time giving the same information over and over again to agents who have only one price from one company?
Comparing over 15 companies, Dan Burghardt Insurance will instantly find what you need – whether it is the lowest price, the lowest down-payment, the lowest monthly payment, or the most complete coverage for your money.

You could say, as an added benefit, we’re providing “free time“ insurance!

Frequently Asked Questions About Louisiana Auto Insurance
What happens if I don’t carry insurance?
Driving without auto insurance will result in fines, a suspended license, and the towing of your vehicle if you are caught on the road without the minimum insurance coverage of 15/30/25.
Louisiana’s Insurance Law, “No-Pay, No-Play” disqualifies anyone who does not carry mandatory liability from receiving claim payments for bodily injuries and property damages in an automobile accident. By not carrying liability insurance you, in turn, are not covered by anyone else’s insurance.
What will I need for proof of insurance?
Your insurance company is required to issue you an auto insurance ID Card on each vehicle they insure. You must carry this in your vehicle at all times when the vehicle is driven. Other states require the same and as you travel from state to state, your minimum limits of liability go up with each state requirement at no additional cost.
What can I do if I have a No Insurance flag on my license?
A Dan Burghardt representative will assist you with contacting the DMV, or you may call 1-877-DMV-LINE (368-5463). Usually it is the result of a lapse in your insurance coverage, a canceled policy, or a vehicle you removed from your policy.
You can avoid the possibility of a flag on your license by turning in the plates, providing a bill of sale, or both, to the DMV before deleting a vehicle or canceling a policy. All canceled policies and deleted vehicles are reported by the insurance company directly to the DMV within ten days, without an explanation. By keeping the DMV up-to-date, you will avoid future flags and fines.
How do I remove a No Insurance flag?
If the vehicle was sold, traded, junked, totaled, returned to lender, repossessed, or registered out-of-state, provide proof within ten days to the DMV.
A flag due to a lapse needs proof of insurance brought to the DMV in order for them to clear cancellation. Usually there is a fine that increases based on the number of lapses that have occurred on the vehicle.
To avoid a flag on a vehicle that is not in use, but still in your possession, you may file a Non-Use Affidavit and turn in your plate with the DMV before you delete it from your insurance policy.
Our Agents can answer and assist you with the proper coverage and procedures to remove flags or suspensions, as well as the reinstatement and renewal process of your licenses per DMV requirements.
