To determine the car insurance company associated with a policy number, contact your insurance agent, as it is possible that the policy number is from the same insurance provider as yours, or request several insurance companies to check the policy number in their systems, recommends If this does not work, call the local Department of Motor Vehicles or vehicle registration office in your area to request the information.
