New Jersey proof-of-insurance requirements

By Brandon L. Guidry June 16, 2017

New Jersey law requires every driver or operator of a vehicle to have a registration certificate and an insurance identification card on hand at all times. The state issued a Motor Vehicle Advisory on March 21, 2017, indicating that motorists may provide either electronic or paper insurance identification cards as proof of insurance.

Cell phones, tablets, and computers are deemed acceptable devices for the display of insurance e-cards. Law enforcement officials or judges are not permitted to access any information other than insurance identification cards when a motorist uses an electronic device for verification.
