This is possible, but could potentially cause problems. For example, if the car is registered in one state and the insurance is in a different state, there could be an issue. Most forms of insurance require proof of insurance at the time the policy was created. This means that most insurers require the car to be registered in the same state. If the insurer discovers that the car is registered in a different state, they could have a problem. This could lead to fines or suspension from the specific state in question's DMV.

Car registrations usually need to be in the same state of the insurance policy as well. However, there are some exceptions, such as a student attending college in a state other than their home state. Make sure you alert your insurance company about any of these unique situations.

There are also certain concessions for other special circumstances, such as military relocations or prolonged out of state working. Talk to your auto insurance provider for more information.
