Can you tell me how to sign up for car insurance?

I'm looking into buying a used car, and I know I need to get it insured. How do I sign up for car insurance?

Great question! Signing up for car insurance is as easy as getting car insurance quotes online and choosing a policy that is right for you.
Before you sit down to shop for car insurance, make sure you have the necessary information handy to make the process easier. This includes:
  • Your name, birth date, and Social Security number
  • Your driver license number
  • Vehicle information, including your VIN, current mileage, equipment
  • Your previous policy declarations page, if applicable
  • A brief history of your driving record, including any tickets or accidents in the past 3 years
This information will allow insurance companies to get you accurate quote for your premium and coverage needs. If you want to make sure you’re getting the most accurate quotes possible, check out the Jerry app—we’ll get you customized quotes from top insurers in seconds, so that all you need to do is pick the plan that works best for you.
Once you find an insurance company that fits your needs, it’s time to sign up. If you do have an existing insurance policy, make sure you set your cancellation date to coincide with the date that your new policy begins so you don’t have a lapse in coverage. And if you use the Jerry app to sign up, we’ll help make sure that every detail is taken care of when you switch over.
Happy shopping!
