When you purchase auto insurance, you will be sent documents which prove that you are covered. Remember, it is very important to keep this with you when you are driving as most states require a driver to show proof of car insurance when stopped by the police. Several other states will simply ask for your registration and driver’s license.
It’s so easy to forget, but if you are involved in an accident or if you are stopped by a patrol officer, you will need it, so always keep it with you or store it safely in your car. You’ll also need to have it with you when you renew your driver’s license or when your car is inspected.
