Yes, your vehicle must be properly insured for your driving test. When you show up for your driving test, the examiner will typically ask to see proof of insurance for the vehicle you will be using for the test.
The minimum amount of insurance required may vary depending on the state in which you are taking the test, so it’s important to check with your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) to ensure that you have the correct coverage. In many cases, you will need to have liability insurance, which covers damages you may cause to other people or their property while driving.
If you don’t have your own vehicle, you may be able to rent one from a driving school or rental agency for your driving test. In this case, the rental company should provide you with the necessary insurance coverage. Be sure to confirm this with the rental company before your test to avoid any issues.
In summary, it’s important to ensure that your vehicle is properly insured before taking your driving test, as driving without insurance can result in fines, license suspension, and other penalties.
You must show that your vehicle is properly insured before the driving test begins (or the test will be postponed). Your State DMV may require one or more of the following before taking the driving test.
- A document with the liability insurance policy or surety bond number.
- An Assigned Risk insurance card with the name of the assigned insurance company, file number, and current coverage dates.
- Current insurance binder or copy of an insurance policy signed or countersigned by an insurance company representative.
- Rental car contract if the driver is listed on the contract as the insured.
- DMV-issued certificate of self-insurance or acknowledgment of cash deposit.
- Written confirmation from the insurer that the person is insured.
