Does paying car insurance build up my credit?

I'm looking for ways to build up my credit score. Will paying for car insurance boost my credit?

Unfortunately, it does not. Insurance companies don’t report to the credit bureau. You’ll have to employ other methods of building up your credit, such as opening the right credit card and making on-time payments on your other bills.
