Verification of Insurance Coverage
Monitoring of Liability Insurance
DMV monitors insurance coverage through the Insurance Verification Program.
Insurance carriers provide DMV with electronic updates of insured information and vehicle description when they cancel, add and write new coverage for motor vehicles registered in Virginia.
DMV verifies that motor vehicles are properly insured by comparing vehicle registration information on file at DMV with liability information transmitted by insurance carriers. When no insurance is found, the motor vehicle owner is required to furnish policy information to DMV for verification.
Request from DMV to Furnish Insurance Information
If you have received an Insurance Verification Inquiry letter from DMV requesting information about your insurance policy, you may submit that information online.
