How can you check if a car is taxed and insured?

I got into an accident, and I didn't get the other driver’s information in time. How do you find out whether a car is insured or not?

How can you check if a car is taxed and insured?
There are a couple of ways that you can check if a car is taxed and insured.
You can try contacting the police for information about the other person’s car insurance if you have a valid reason—like an accident. You’ll need to provide the other person’s license plate number and make an incident report.
Another place to check is your local DMV. You’ll need to provide some verifiable information about both yourself and the accident. And note that if any of your information is found to be false, your request will be denied.
After an accident, you might see a spike in your car insurance premiums. But the Jerry app can help you find lower rates.
