Eligibility

Can I still get insurance on my car if the previous owner still has it insured?

Yes, you should get insurance on your vehicle immediately; the previous owner's existing policy will not affect the insurability of the car. The previous insurance on the vehicle does not apply to you, especially once the vehicle is handed over and sold.

Coverage & Claims

I have liability and uninsured motorist coverage. Can I file a claim on a hit and run accident?

Yes, your uninsured motorist coverage would include coverage for UMPD (uninsured motorist property damage). Your deductible typically applies.

Insurance Companies

Does State Farm match auto insurance quotes with other companies?

In truth, no. Car insurance companies determine their rates based on their previous years' filings (loss to revenue ratio) in addition to other factors.

Driving History

What can I do if a ticket is listed on my driving record but I was never issued a ticket?

Your best bet would be to request a copy of your driving record from the DMV and see what is listed. If you see something that is not supposed to be on there you may be able to dispute the ticket with the courts.

Eligibility

Does a criminal record affect your insurance?

A non-driving felony conviction most likely won't affect your rate, but it could make you ineligible for a policy with certain companies. Since you are already aware of the incident, you will want to disclose this when you call a company for a quote so they can let you know up front if that will create an issue.

Coverage & Claims

Will my insurance policy cover me while I drive in a different state?

Whether you work in a different state than where you reside or are leaving the state on vacation, your insurance policy will follow you. Each state requires differing amounts of coverage so your current policy will adjust if you happen to be driving in a state that requires more coverage than the state where your vehicle is insured.
