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