We’re very excited to be in Illinois. It’s a close neighbor and one of the initial states we applied to. Plus, it’s a state that’s chock-full of good drivers who are paying way too much for their auto insurance.

A match made in heaven? We think so. (We’re glad the regulators agree.)

To get started with Root:

  • Download the app and burn through the 45 second signup. (Forget everything you know about insurance forms.)
  • Take the test drive. It’s usually about three weeks.
  • Get a rate based primarily on how you drive—up to 52% off your current rate.
  • Purchase a policy with a few taps.

That’s it. Welcome to fair car insurance, Illinoisans. It’s going to be worth the wait.
