What address should I use for a new car insurance policy if I am about to move to a different state but don't know the address?

You should use the address where you are currently living, especially if you don't know the address of the place where you are moving. The problem is, you will likely have to start a new policy once you move to Wyoming since each state has different insurance requirements. This also means that you will have to cancel your previous insurance policy and hope for a refund.

How do I get a new policy if I'm between residences?

You will need a permanent address to get a policy with most companies so I would recommend using your previous address until you move to a permanent location. At that point, you can update the address on your policy.

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.

Should I get insurance or car registration first?

<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;In most states you are required to provide proof that your vehicle is insured before allowing you to register your vehicle. The insurance policy must meet the state's minimum coverage requirement to tag your vehicle so you will want to take your proof of coverage with you to verify your compliance with the law.

Do I need to keep a printed insurance card in my vehicle or can I show digital proof of insurance on my phone?

<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;As of May 2015, 42 states allowed for digital proof of insurance rather than a paper ID card. That is seven more states than in 2013 so there is potential that within the next few years every state could allow for digital proof.

Coverage & Claims

How much liability coverage do I need?

<span data-sheets-value="{&quot;1&quot;:2,&quot;2&quot;:&quot;There is a minimum amount of liability coverage that your state requires you to carry on your auto policy to comply with the law but the minimum limits often aren't sufficient coverage to adequately protect your assets from a lawsuit. In states that require a very low amount of liability coverage (like California, Arizona, and Florida) it is a good idea to carry higher limits than just the minimum requirement.
