Are You a Legal Professional?

Driver's License & Vehicle Info

So you have a brand new license and a brand new car, and you want to hit the road. Just make sure your car and your finances meet all the legal requirements before you back out of the driveway. Automobile insurance, emissions standards, vehicle registration, and the issuance of driver's licenses are regulated at the state level. Most states require that drivers maintain a minimum level of auto insurance so that medical and property bills do not go unpaid after an accident, and regulate emissions to keep the air clean. This section provides state-specific links related to these topics, frequently asked questions about vehicle inspections and more.
