Should this be any more complicated than to simply keep paying the premiums on the NJ car to the NJ insurance company? I don't think they would really care where you are as long as they are told where the car is garaged and who is the primary operator.

Here is how you do this. Get the insurance in the name of the owner and list the people or person who drives the car as a driver. Usually the driver can have a driver's license from another state and or live in another state.

What is the proper way for a resident of Oklahoma to title register insure a new car that was bought in Oklahoma yet the primary driver will live in Nevada?

If the owner of the vehicle will be living in Nevada, you'll want to reregister the vehicle in Nevada. Contact your auto insurance to get the insurance switched to the state of Nevada, and then call the DMV there for additional information. If the owner of the vehicle will be living in Oklahoma but the primary driver will be living in Nevada then the registration and the insurance will need to be for the state of Oklahoma regardless; just notify the insurance of the garaging address being outside of the state and again, speak to the DMV.

Is there any way you can insure your car in another state from which you live?

In most cases you need to insure the car with a policy written in the state that the vehicle is registered. Many states require that the insurance companies report the vehicles that they are insuring to the state for cross reference of motor vehicle registrations. So if you live in state A and your vehicle is registered in state A but insured in state B then state A will think that your vehicle is not insured and revoke your vehicle registration. Now if you live in state A but register and insure your vehicle in state B then you run the risk of not adhereing to the law that says you must register the vehicle in the state of your primary residence. If you have a legitimate reason for doing this such as a second residence in another state at which you keep a vehicle then you should have no problem doing this. If you are doing it to avoid higher taxes or insurance premiums then you will be doing something illegal.
