Can I keep my auto insurance when I move?

If you are in the process of moving within the state, you will be allowed to keep your auto insurance. While you can keep the same insurance policy within the state you will be required to change your address which can affect your rates depending on the claims reported in your zip code.

If you are moving out of state, you will be required to change insurance to a policy that is rated in the new state. DMV and financial responsibility laws require drivers to carry insurance in the state in which they are a legal resident. When you register your vehicle in the state you will be required to show proof of insurance in that state and you will also be required to carry at least the state minimums in liability insurance coverage.
