Q) I moved from NY to RO MD IN NOVEMBER AND IM TRYING TO SWITCH MY LICENSE OVER ALONG WITH MY INSURANCE WHAT IS NEEDED?
A) When you move to a new state, you are typically required to obtain a new driver’s license and register your vehicles within a certain time period, usually 30 days or less. To obtain a new driver’s license in your new state, you will generally need to visit a local department of motor vehicles (DMV) office and bring the following documents with you:
- Proof of identity, such as a valid driver’s license from your previous state or a passport
- Proof of your Social Security number, such as a Social Security card or a W-2 form
- Proof of your new address, such as a utility bill or a bank statement
- Payment for any fees that are required to obtain a new license
You may also be required to pass a written knowledge test and/or a driving test, depending on your state’s requirements.
To switch your car insurance to your new state, you will need to contact your insurance company and let them know that you have moved. You may need to provide them with your new address and other information about your move. Your insurance company will then be able to update your policy and provide you with coverage in your new state.
It is a good idea to check with the DMV and your insurance company to find out their specific requirements for obtaining a new license and insurance in your new state. They should be able to provide you with more detailed information on the documents you will need to bring and any other steps you need to take.
