Georgia uses an online database to verify your insurance status. The Georgia Electronic Insurance Compliance System (GEICS) can be accessed by law enforcement and other government agencies. While it is your car insurance carrier’s responsibility to report your insurance status, you may want to verify your information is accurate at the Vehicle Insurance State Inquiry Application.
While minimum car insurance requirements in Georgia are predefined, they are not meant to be a cap on how much coverage you can or should get. You may personally opt for more coverage to protect your financial assets and your vehicle and/or passengers.
