Question

How do I update my car insurance after getting a new license?

I recently moved from Illinois to North Carolina. How should I update my insurance to reflect the new driver's license or would I have to buy new insurance policy?

Congrats on the move! Because car is priced at the zip code level and regulated at the state, you're going to want to update your car insurance to reflect that. Bear in mind, your premium will change as a result of your move. According to our State of Insurance data in 2017, the average premium in Illinois was $1,120 versus $865 in North Carolina! North Carolina was actually the cheapest state to receive car insurance for our 2017 analysis. If you're satisfied with your current car insurance company, I recommend contacting an agent or customer service representative and getting a policy for your state. They will most likely re-write your policy. If, however, you're not and want to shop around, see our guide to car insurance shopping and savings here.
