Thanks for your question! All but two states, Virginia and New Hampshire, require that you carry car insurance on a registered vehicle. Each state has its own specific requirements for minimum coverage needed to be compliant with state law. Make sure your coverage adheres to your state’s standards.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
