Digital Proof Of Georgia Auto Insurance? Is It Acceptable?

Modern technology, specifically smartphones, have made life a lot easier for many people. The smartphone’s use has now stretched to providing proof of car insurance. The number of states that allow electronic proof of car insurance now sits at 39 after the recent addition of West Virginia. That leaves only 11 states left that prefer paper proof.

The question arises of what exactly constitutes reliable proof of insurance on a smartphone. There is no exact answer to this. A PDF stored or an insurance card downloaded is preferred, but there is nothing that says you can’t use a picture of your card as proof. This development can make traffic stops and getting pulled over a bit less stressful as you’re not frantically searching for your insurance card!
