How a person obtains proof of insurance varies based on the policy set by the insurance provider. For example, GEICO states that proof of insurance can be obtained through its online service center or by calling its customer service department.
Allstate says that proof of insurance can be printed via links in the My Account page of a customer's online account or by calling an Allstate agent for a replacement.
However, DMV.org offers some alternative ways to show proof of insurance if a consumer is unable to print a card at home. These include a copy of the declarations page, a letter from an insurance company or a copy of the application from an insurance program. It is important to note that whether or not these documents are valid because proof of insurance can vary based on state law.
