Can I buy a car insurance without proof?
Car insurance without proof is not possible. Your insurer must be able to verify that the information you provided when you made the quote is true.
Because your statements affect the amount of your premium. Some drivers, to reduce the amount of their premium, might be tempted not to mention a claim or a termination.
To prevent this type of behavior, your insurer will ask you for a set of supporting documents to finalize your car insurance subscription.
What proof must I provide to purchase car insurance?
To finalize the subscription of your auto policy, your insurer can ask you for the following proofs:
- A bank account statement (RIB) and the signed SEPA mandate, if you wish to pay your auto insurance premiums by direct debit.
- Your driver’s license and those of the persons mentioned on the contract
- Your registration certificate (formerly “gray card”)
- Your statement of information covering a period of 3 years
If your vehicle has not been insured for more than 14 days, your car insurer may also ask for a voluntary technical inspection.

False statements, what are the consequences?
In case of misrepresentation, the insurer may decide to terminate your contract.
If a claim has occurred and the misrepresentation is intentional, he or she may refuse to pay the damage compensation amounts and you will have to repay all the sums you have received.
On the criminal side, a false statement is liable to prosecution for fraud. You will then incur 5 years in prison and a fine of € 375,000.
