Policy Basics

What information do you need for a car insurance quote?

Gathering all the information needed for your quote will get the quote to you faster and help you save money.

  • Information about you, including name, address, social security number, marital status and drivers license number.
  • Information about your cars: Make and model year of your car, the VIN number (check your registration for this information) as well as any safety features and weekly mileage.
  • A list of everyone who will drive the car, their ages and any driver safety courses they have completed. Many insurance companies also want to know who in your household is of legal driving age, what their license status is (such as, whether they have a learner’s permit or a suspended license) and whether other drivers in your household have their own insurance. Depending on the state, this can help the insurance agent determine who should be listed and considered for your quote.
