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.
Do I need a California driver's license to obtain insurance for a car registered in California?Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on February 22, 2021
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?
