What’s the best way to check if my car is insured?

I’m pretty sure I have car insurance, but I don’t know when the policy expires? Is there an app or a way to check?

Answer
It’s incredibly important to make sure you have car insurance and that your policy details are up-to-date. You cannot legally drive without a current car insurance policy.
Fortunately, there are a few ways to check on your policy, but some are easier than others. If you know your insurance provider or have your insurance card in your glove compartment, you can contact your provider to check your policy details.
If you don’t have all that information, you can check with your local DMV or Department of Public safety provided you have the following information:
  • VIN (vehicle identification number)
  • License plate
  • Driver’s license number
  • Driver’s address
The last option would be to search for a new car insurance quote. Often, an insurance agent can run a CLUE report, which would be able to find your current policy.
