Is car insurance mandatory in every state?

Do I need auto insurance no matter where I move in the U.S.?

“That is a great question!
All but two states, Virginia and New Hampshire, require that you carry car insurance on a registered vehicle.
In the case of Virginia, there is a yearly $500 uninsured vehicle fee. It will not cover you if there’s an accident.
In New Hampshire, if you get into an at-fault collision, you will be financially responsible.
Each state has its own specific requirements for minimum coverage needed to be compliant with state law. Even though car insurance is not required in Virginia and New Hampshire, it’s still recommended.
Make sure your coverage adheres to your state’s standards. If you want cheap car insurance quotes fast to ensure your coverage matches with your state’s laws, go to Jerry. The free app gathers affordable quotes, helps you switch plans, offers support, and even cancels your old policy for you.”
