How can I check my car insurance company’s name?

I have a car I’ve been holding onto and insuring for my niece while she’s away. She’s coming home soon. How do I check which car insurance company this car is under?

The easiest way to find the name of the insurance company’s name is by finding your proof of insurance. This is usually kept somewhere safe or easy to access while driving. Check:
  • The glove box of the car
  • Inside the car manual
  • The visor
  • Your wallet
If you can’t find the policy card, you can check a few more places:
  • Bills from an insurance company
  • Bank account statements for auto payments from an insurance company
  • Your local DMV
  • Your local state’s department of insurance
You may also want to also call your insurance company. There’s a chance you added her car onto your own policy (which should have gotten you a multi-vehicle discount).
If the insurance on the car has lapsed, then it’s important to make sure she gets coverage before she or anyone else drives the car. If you need a new insurance policy, Jerry can help you switch providers in a matter of minutes.
