GEICO insurance can provide you with a new insurance ID card in as little as five minutes. You can get started by contacting them online, by phone, by mail, or by fax.
Part of the responsibility of driving is to carry
proof of insurance
with you at all times. If you don’t provide it when asked, you could be fined—even if you were insured at the time. Fortunately, there’s no need to stuff your entire policy into your pocket—all you need to do is tuck an insurance ID card into your wallet or your glovebox, and you’re covered!
If you’ve got a policy with GEICO, here’s everything you need to know to get your GEICO insurance ID card (and why it’s necessary). 

How to get your GEICO auto insurance ID card

Typically, your insurance provider will deliver a printed auto insurance ID card along with a paper copy of your policy. But if the original is nowhere to be found or you need a duplicate, there’s no need to worry. Grab your policy number, because you’ll need it to do the following.
  • Get a card online: Visit
    GEICO's website
    to create an account and click “Get ID Cards” to download a printable file. If you don’t want to make an account, use
    GEICO’s Express Services
    instead—no login is required!
  • Request a card by phone: Call 800-861-8360 to request a card from a live insurance agent. If you’re looking for proof of specialized insurance, like an
    SR-22
    or
    FR-44
    form, call 877-206-0215 instead.
  • Request a card by mail: You can make your request in writing using the mailing address of your local GEICO branch.
  • Request a card by fax: To get the right fax number, you’ll first need to
    email a request to GEICO customer service
    . Remember to put your policy number on every page you fax.
Virtually every car insurance provider has an app these days, and GEICO is no exception. The GEICO Mobile app allows you to view, download, print, or email your insurance ID card on your smartphone. 
Getting started is as simple as downloading the app (for
iOS
or
Android
) and registering for an account. Next, tap “View ID Cards” to load the info to your phone and access them at any time—even without internet access.

What’s included on your GEICO insurance ID card

Your GEICO insurance ID card shows that you’ve purchased a legally-compliant car insurance policy, but it doesn’t go into detail. Here’s what it lists:
  • The name, logo, and address of GEICO insurance
  • GEICO’s NAIC (National Association of Insurance Commissioners) number 
  • Your first and last name (under “named insured”) 
  • Your car’s make, model, and
    vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • The start and end dates of your policy
If you’re interested in the specifics, you’ll need to find your policy’s
declarations page
. You can’t use it as proof of insurance, but you can use it to review your limits, deductibles, discounts, and more. You don’t need to keep it in your car, either. It’s best to put it in a safe place at home.

Can you show proof of insurance on your phone?

If you’re thinking of visiting
Santa Fe
, make sure that you have a printed insurance ID card.
New Mexico

Where can I find my insurance information on the GEICO DriveEasy app?

The
GEICO DriveEasy app
doesn’t contain a copy of your insurance ID card. It’s a telematics tracker that records your car usage and driving behaviors. While it’s useful for grabbing
car insurance discounts
, you can’t use it for identification, so stick with a paper card or the GEICO Mobile App.
