Q: I lost my insurance card for my car, how do I get a new one?

A: You have 3 ways you can get a new proof of car insurance card and all of them are easy.

1. Contact your car insurance agent or car insurance company.

Your agent can print you off a car insurance card right there in their office, send you one in the mail, or email you one. Your car insurance company can also send you one in the mail or email you one.

2. Get signed up for online access to your car insurance policy.

Once you register for access on your car insurance company’s website you will have access to your policy information, billing information, be able to make most changes, make payments, and print out documents. This includes being able print out your car insurance cards as often as you need to and make as many copies as you want.

3. Download your car insurance company’s app.

This is going to be the absolute fastest way to get access to your car insurance card. Once you register on your car insurance company’s app you will have instant access to your car insurance card on your phone. Yes, this is legal proof of car insurance now, in almost all states. But, it is always good to check your own state laws to be sure a police officer would accept this type of car insurance card.
