Do I need a California driver's license to obtain insurance for a car registered in California?
I have a car that is registered in California, but my license is from New Jersey (where I lived before moving to California). Is that going to stop me from getting insurance?

Thanks for your question! To legally register a vehicle in California, you need to be able to provide proof that the vehicle is insured in California. You don’t necessarily need a CA license, but not every carrier will provide you with insurance in California if you have a license from out of state.

What happens once gap insurance covers my loan?
My wife and I were in a not-at-fault accident. The other driver's insurance is covering the cost of our vehicle, which is totaled. We do have gap insurance, but I'm wondering what happens after that. Am I responsible for getting a new car?
