How to check if your car insurance is valid?

How do I check and see if my car insurance is still valid? I’ve been in the hospital for a while after an accident and haven’t driven in several months.

I hope you are feeling better and recovering well. How to best check your policy status depends on what car insurance you have. Many companies now allow you to check your insurance details online or through their mobile app.
You’ll need to have your policy number ready if you haven’t already logged in. This should be at the top of your policy card. You might also have a pdf version of this on your computer.
You could also check with your local DMV or state’s department of insurance for details about your insurance or even call your insurance company’s 24/7 hotline for assistance.
