How to check car insurance validity?

I can’t remember the last time I paid my car insurance bill. I know I need to have an active car insurance policy. How can I check if the policy is valid?

Answer
The best way to verify your car insurance coverage is by checking with your provider.
If you know your provider, you can contact them via their website or phone number and talk with an agent who can verify your policy.
It’s also likely you put your insurance ID card in the glove compartment of your car as you need proof of insurance on hand in case of an accident or if you’re stopped by law enforcement. This card will have your policy information, including the active dates of your policy.
Another tactic is to apply for new car insurance quotes. When you apply for quotes, an agent will run a CLUE report, which will note if you have any active policies on the vehicle.
If you find that you do need a new car insurance policy, shop for quotes with Jerry! Jerry is a licensed broker app that will present you with dozens of quotes in a matter of minutes. Once you find a policy that works for you, Jerry takes care of the rest. Jerry will even send you new quotes every time your policy is up for renewal, so you never have to worry about a lapse in your coverage.
