​​​​ Liability insurance must be issued by a company licensed to do business in North Carolina.

Each driver must be listed on the document provided for liability insurance when applying as a new driver.

​​​​​​​The N.C. Division of Motor Vehicles recognizes the documents below as proof of liability insurance. ​

​Preparing to Show Proof of Liability Insurance

Applicants may contact their insurance provider during their visit at a local driver license office to request a faxed copy. ​
