How do I fill out a car insurance application?

I just started living on my own in Boston, but I've never had my own personal car insurance. I think I know who I want coverage through, but how do I fill out an application for car insurance?

Depending on the insurance provider, you may be able to fill out a car insurance application online, in person, or over the phone. It’s important to pre-read your insurance application and identify the exact information they are looking for, so you can get your application approved and get insured quickly.
Some of the information you will need includes:
  • Your driver’s license
  • Your Social Security number
  • Vehicle identification number (VIN)
  • The declarations page from your last car insurance policy, if applicable
  • The types of coverage you want
You can also easily get started on a new car insurance policy with the Jerry app. After providing you with a comprehensive cross-analysis of the best policies across providers, Jerry will handle the phone calls, paperwork, and renewals to sign you up for your top pick. Plus, Jerry’s friendly agents are here to answer your questions and provide advice on the best coverage options.
