Do I have to switch my auto insurance if I'm in the military and I get stationed in a different state for a year?
I recently got stationed in a new state. However, my new location has decent public transportation and I'll only be driving my car on occasion. Do I need to switch the car insurance to a different state if I'm only stationed here for a year?

“Civilians are always required to change their car insurance to their new state if they move, but this doesn’t apply to military members. Most insurance companies, especially the best insurers for military, won’t require you to switch your insurance.
However, you should still do your due diligence and contact your car insurance provider just to make sure. If you’re stationed in your new state longer than expected, you might have to switch, but again, defer to your insurer. “
