How do I check if my car is insured or not?

I just bought a car from my friend and I want to see if her policy is still active. I'd like to wait a bit before dealing with insurance on my own. How can I check if the car has insurance or not?

Unfortunately, you will no longer be covered under any existing policies on the vehicle. Once you purchase the car and put your name on the title, you will need to sign up for your own car insurance.
It’s a good idea to remind your friend to cancel her old policy, so she isn’t paying to insure a car she no longer owns.
When it comes to your insurance, the Jerry app is the easiest way to find a great policy for an affordable rate. Jerry can:
  • Compare rates from the nation’s largest insurance companies
  • Sign you up for your new policy

  • Automatically look for new quotes before every policy renewal period
If you have any questions, just text Jerry through the app, and an experienced agent will help you each step of the way.
