Can employers verify car insurance with your driver's license and social security number?

"I got offered a job, but they require that I have car insurance. They want me to send them a copy of my policy now. I plan on getting it once I get hired.

Would they be able to verify that I'm uninsured with my driver's license or social security number? "

“Your potential employer typically won’t have access to any reporting that would show your prior or current insurance information. This is likely why they are requesting you send in a copy of your policy for them to verify.
If you need car insurance to get the job, the best thing to do would be to look into a few different carriers. You may be able to find affordable car insurance by comparison shopping.
Most car insurance plans also only require a downpayment to start the policy. Try to find a policy with a down payment you can afford right now. After you get the job, you can shop around for a better rate.
Even if you don’t get the job, you should still get car insurance. It is required in most states and is essential to ensure the safety of you and others on the road.”
