Virginia – Auto Insurance

Virginia has  started the Insurance Verification Program which monitors for uninsured motorists. The key method they use for monitoring is electronic insurance policy records that all insurance policy agencies licensed to do business in the State of Washington are compelled to submit. This includes information on new policies, changes to current policies and the cancellation of policies. The electronic record monitoring, along with more traditional monitoring such as accident reports and police officer requests for proof of insurance make up the entirety of the program. The electronic method being the newest and most important, as this method was done with paper previously and was much harder to compare against registered vehicles, looking for those who have let their insurance lapse.
