    Vehicle Ownership (and insurance) with specific regards to copies

    Just a hopefully quick one here to clarify.


    Can I carry just a copy of my ownership in my vehicle? I'm talking made on a small home photocopier (all in one printer thingy).



    I've heard/read/been told that only a "True Copy" may be used. I've also been told by a car dealership that any copy can be used.


    I suppose along these lines, what about insurance pink slips?

    Thanks

    Good question!

    The answer is yes, you can photocopy your registration (ownership), as long as it is complete (both sides) and legible. When you renew your sticker, simply make another photocopy as above.

    As far as your proof of insurance, there are no provisions to photocopy your insurance card. This must be an original (pink slip).

    I hope this helps!

    Thank You. That clears it up greatly. I don't mind carrying my original insurance slip, as I have multiple copies sent anyways. Ownership has always been one thing I wasn't sure of. We have multiple vehicles, drivers, and trailers. Keeping track of who has what is a bit of a chore. Knowing that I can just throw copies into both vehicles or with all drivers, makes life easier.

    Thanks again, and thanks to JK's for arranging this forum!

    i just got back from the insurance company 10 mins ago for reinstating one of my tj's.
    my policy renewal is up next month, they gave me a non colour printed copy of my pink slip.
    handed to me on a full piece of printer paper just as if it was photocopied.

    don't think i'll have a problem, but thought i would just bring this up.

    You PROBABLY won't have a problem, having that piece of paper is definitely better than nothing. I try to tell people in these types of replies, as long as you are aware and make an educated decision.

    On an open forum, I have to be responsible and cite what the law says.
