How do I find out if my car is insured?

I just bought a car and I thought my dad transferred my insurance to my new car. He says he thinks he did it, but he’s not sure. How can I find out if my car is insured?

That was nice of your dad to do you a favor! Thankfully, there are plenty of ways to see if he successfully switched your car insurance.
If you want to find out if you’re insured, follow these steps:
  • Search the interior of your car for a declaration page or an insurance card.
  • Contact your local DMV or Secretary of State’s office, as either one should your insurance information.
  • Check your online policy with your current insurer. If you’re unsure, ask your father (dads know these things).
One of these should yield the answer you need. If you find out that you’re not insured, make sure to purchase an insurance policy immediately!
The easiest way to get a policy at the best price is to use the Jerry app. Signing up with Jerry takes just minutes and you can immediately compare quotes from over 50 insurers to find the best rate for the coverage you require.
