My name isn't on my parents' insurance card. Am I driving uninsured?
I'm 16 and I've started to drive by myself. My parents say they added my name to their car insurance policy, but my name is missing from the insurance card. Does this mean I'm not on their plan after all? Am I driving uninsured?

Thanks for your question! In most cases, only the named insured (the owner of the policy) and/or the person who owns the vehicle are listed on the ID card. As long as your name is listed as a driver on the policy, it doesn’t matter whether you’re on the ID card — you’re covered under the policy as a driver.

Are you legally required to have car insurance in Virginia?
I'm moving to Virginia and I need to buy a car for the first time for my new job there (I lived in the city and used public transportation and Uber before). My friend told me I don't need to worry about car insurance there. Is that true?
