As an out-of-state college student, where do I get car insurance?
I have Nevada car insurance, but I’m moving to California for college. I’ll return to Nevada when school's out. Where am I supposed to get insurance?
You are able to keep the insurance in Nevada because your primary residence is still going to be located in that state.
When you go to school, you just want to make sure you carry the correct limits on your policy.
California has a minimum limit for your bodily injury of 15/30 ($15,000 for injury or death to one person; $30,000 for injury or death to more than one person) and $5,000 for property damage. As long as your limits are above that amount, you are fine to keep your Nevada policy.
Moving is a great time to shop around for the best car insurance rates. Try the free Jerry app to compare rates from the top 50 companies in under a minute.
