How do you add a car to a Root insurance policy?

What steps should I take to add a new car to my Root policy? I just bought a new car and I'm having trouble adding it to my current policy.

Adding a car to your car insurance policy should be just about the same no matter which provider you’re with!
For Root insurance, just visit and search for a section labeled Auto Policy or Coverage. Once you’re there, you should see an option to manage your policy, and this should include managing your vehicles.
You can also call your provider to speak to an agent directly if you’d rather.
To add your car, you’ll need the following information:
  • The make, model, and year of your car
  • Your license plate number
  • Your car’s vehicle identification number (VIN), which is usually on the dashboard on the driver’s side
  • Your insurance policy number
With that information, you should be able to add a car either online or on the phone. But be aware that making changes to your insurance can impact your rate. With more than one vehicle on your policy, it’s worth asking your provider if they offer a multi-car discount to lower your premium a bit.
If the price of your updated policy is higher than you expected, or if your old policy just isn’t working for you anymore, consider shopping around for new insurance. The Jerry app will help you compare policies and prices for free, so you can find the best insurance at the best rate.
