You can be asked for it at any time, and you can be ticketed, fine or jailed for not having it. Each state can vary slightly, and a lot can depend on the cop you get. But the general idea is that you keep a copy in your car and a copy on you. That way if you loan your car to someone they can show proof that the car is insured. Check your local state for more specifics, but in my opinion yes.
