Can an employer verify that I have auto insurance for a new job?

Just recently, I was offered nearly double my current salary for a driving job. The employer will only let me sign a contract if I have auto insurance, but I currently don't. Right now, money is tight. Can my new employer verify if I have auto insurance?

Answer
“If you’re driving right now, you should have auto insurance. Driving without car insurance is illegal in most states, and if you get caught, you could face hefty fines.
That said, your employer probably can’t verify if you have auto insurance, but the contract will probably say that you have it. So if you’re getting this fantastic, high-paying gig, why would you lie to your employer right off the bat? This is a bad situation that’s setting you up to be dishonest and untrustworthy.
The best idea would be to get some car insurance quotes online right now. Most companies can usually insure you within 24 hours. That way, you’ll be ready to sign the contract and can maintain your integrity.
