When I switch to a different car insurance company, do I need to change my registration in California?

I switched insurance companies, but I still have the same car. Do I need to re-register it?

“If you aren’t moving out of state, you will not need to re-register your car. Vehicle registration falls under state regulation; it has nothing to do with insurance companies.
You should make sure that your new policy meets the state minimum car insurance standards, as outlined by the California Department of Motor Vehicles, and that you carry your new proof of insurance with you. “
