Does a vehicle need car insurance if its in storage in Virginia?

If a vehicle is parked on someone's lawn, never driven, used only for extra storage, in the state of Virginia, does it need to be insured? The owner is on disability and only drives for groceries and kidney dialysis. The second vehicle stores his belongings as he rents room.

In Virginia, if a vehicle is not registered, parked on private property, and not being driven then it does not have to be insured. Virginia law requires that a vehicle be insured before it is registered, so that's something to keep in mind if he wanted to drive this particular car at a later time.
