What’s included on your AAA insurance card

Your AAA ID card functions as proof of financial responsibility, showing that you’ve purchased at least the minimum amount of insurance coverage legally required by your state. It won’t indicate any specifics of your policy, but it will show:
  • Your insurance provider’s name and address (i.e., AAA)
  • The provider’s NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) number 
  • Your full name
  • The make, model, and vehicle identification number (VIN) of your car
  • The effective date and expiration date of your policy 
More detailed information about your policy, like coverage limits or deductibles, can be found on your
declarations page
. It’s important to note that although your declaration page has plenty of information about your insurance policy, it cannot be used as proof of insurance

Can you show proof of insurance on your phone?

New Mexico
is the only state that does not allow drivers to use their phone to show electronic proof of insurance during a traffic stop. Good news for residents in the other 49 states—if you are pulled over, you can show proof of insurance right on your AAA app.
Most major car insurance companies, including
State Farm
, and
offer both digital ID cards and traditional physical insurance cards. With a policy from AAA, you’ll have the ability to show proof of insurance through the app or with a physical copy that’s been printed out.
