Answer
Congrats on your upcoming move! A move can be overwhelming, and you don’t want your car insurance to get lost in the shuffle.
When you move, you’ll have to let your car insurance company know because car insurance car insurance premiums vary depending on where you live.
First, you’ll need to check to see what the minimum liability requirements are in your new state, as each state sets its own limits. California tends to have some of the higher minimums, so keep that in mind when you look for rates.
Once you decide on the coverage you need, contact your new provider to tell them your new address. Again, your rates will likely be higher than they were before.
You’ll need proof of insurance in your current state to register your car with the local DMV. You will also need to show proof of residency and identification.
