“Depending on where you live, the rules vary for active-duty military. Your state may allow you to keep your registration where your permanent address is since you are in the military. Be sure to check with your state’s DMV regarding these rules.
Any insurance company will require that you list the address where the vehicle is garaged. This can be different from your mailing or permanent address.

Is it normal for monthly car insurance to cost more than the monthly loan payment?
I'm 22 and I want to buy a new car with a loan. But when I get quotes, the insurance is actually more than the loan payment. I also have a car my parents gave me that's paid off. I was thinking of trading this in, but now I'm not so sure.
