This doesn’t really make a difference to many of our insurance companies, but here’s the catch, the DMV will care. Many DMVs won’t accept out-of-state insurance and could fine you and/or suspend your license or plates. It is your responsibility to go to the DMV and get this corrected.

If you’re military, there is likely an exception or form you will need to fill out. If you are not military and your DMV won’t accept out of state insurance, you will need to get the vehicle registered in the state you reside, just a heads up!
