Question: Can I present digital proof of insurance and registration when pulled over in Texas?
Answer: Yes, presenting an electronic copy of insurance to a state officer during a traffic stop should suffice.
According to the Texas Tribune, a law allowing motorists to pull up proof of insurance on their smartphones was passed in 2013.
As for vehicle registration, all drivers should present this by displaying a valid registration sticker from the Texas Department of Motor Vehicles on the vehicle’s front windshield.
