How do I get my license back?
I was rear-ended a couple of weeks ago and my license was suspended because the officer couldn't verify my proof of insurance. I have insurance, and the company is supposed to call to get the issue resolved with the police, but I can't get them to do anything and I need my license back. Do I just suck it up and pay the fee to get my license back even though I don't technically owe it?

How much will it cost to add my 19-year-old daughter to my car insurance policy?
My teenage daughter just got her driver's license. We have an agreement that until she can pay for half of a new car, she's going to use mine.

So how much will it cost to add my daughter to my car insurance?

When you move but still live in the same state, do you have to change your address with the DMV?
Why do I have to change my address if I live in the same state? I live in Texas and moved to a new home about eight months ago. I never updated my address because it didn't seem important at the time. Last night, I was at a traffic stop and the officer said he would let me go with a warning but that I needed to change my license right away. Why does it matter that I haven't updated it?
