If I just moved to a different state, should I switch my car insurance to my new state of residency?
I just moved from Nevada to California. I want to know if I can still keep my Nevada car insurance, especially if the rates in Nevada are cheaper. Am I required to switch my insurance to my new state of residency?

“If you moved states, you’re going to need to switch both your registration and your car insurance to your new state of residence. Failing to switch car insurance to your new state just to save money is a form of fraud, so it’s in your best interest to follow the law.
The good news is that the average cost of liability insurance in California ($611) is cheaper than in Nevada ($836), so you may actually save quite a bit. To save even more, make sure to get some car insurance quotes online to find the best rate possible.”
