Documents you should always have in your vehicle

Driving is something most people take for granted. In the state of Mississippi, drivers are required to have auto liability insurance. Other insurance coverage is voluntary but often of equal importance. At Insurance Protection Specialists in Flowood, MS, we ensure that our customers are not only in compliance but have the right coverage for their situation. 

Documents you should always have in your vehicle

Vehicle registration

You are required to register your vehicle in the county of residence in the state of Mississippi. You need to pay all the fees and taxes, and then you get a copy of your renewal. The vehicle registration form should be placed in your glove box and carried there at all times. If you are pulled over by the authorities, you may be asked to produce your registration, and you want to be able to do that easily. 

Insurance card

When you get your state-mandated vehicle insurance, your receipt to show that you have coverage is an insurance card that you can print off the website of your insurance carrier. If that is not comfortable for you, you can get them mailed to you, and they are often mailed with your new policy. You can even pick them up at your insurance agent’s office and then place one copy in your glove box and save the other. 

Drivers license

You must have a driver’s license to drive a vehicle on the road in Mississippi. In Mississippi, you can get your learner’s permit at age 14 and your driver’s license at 15. You have to drive under supervision until you are 16, but then the restrictions end. Most people carry their driver’s licenses as a form of identification. You need to have it in your possession when you are driving.
