How long does it take for the DMV to show your car insurance information?

I got a notice from the DMV that my insurance lapsed. I started a new policy and my insurer said they sent proof to the DMV. Their website hasn't updated yet. How long does it take to update your information?

Answer
The DMV can take up to seven days to update their reports. As long as your car insurance company sent the proof to the DMV, you shouldn’t have any more issues.
If you’re concerned, follow up with the DMV yourself. Most allow you to submit proof of insurance to them as well. Should you face any fines or fees after you reinstate your insurance, contact the DMV. They should reverse any incorrect charges.
