Knowing what documents you need to keep in your vehicle is essential if you are ever in an accident or are pulled over by the authorities for any other reason. You will be required to turn over some documents when asked. Knowing exactly where they are can save a lot of grief. At P3 Insurance Solutions in Memphis, TN, we make sure that our customers have all the required documentation that is mandated by the state of Tennessee.
Documents you should always carry in your vehicle
In Tennessee, you can renew your vehicle registration online, and then the registration and the striker will be mailed to you within a week or so. You place the sticker on the license plate and put the registration in your glove box. If you lose your registration certificate, it can be replaced by sending the appropriate documentation to the county clerk’s office.
You are required to carry auto insurance in the state of Tennessee. You can opt for basic auto insurance, or you can get total coverage which includes protection for your vehicle. Whichever way you choose, when your auto insurance policy is mailed to you or you receive your digital copy, a copy of your insurance cards will be included. You will have to print them if you opt to receive your documents digitally. The nice thing is, that you can print another copy any time you want if they are misplaced.
Many people use their driver’s license as a form of identification. Therefore, it will usually be on their person at all times. This can be in a wallet or purse. But if you are in your vehicle, the driver’s license will be there with you.
