To consolidate this for you, in the UK should not be covered as party insurance in place to drive that car from the moment he is on the way. The previous owner's insurance does not cover it , or insurance on another car .

You have three options

1) Obtain the insurance in place before you go and complete the operation.

2) Get the previous owner to give it to you before completing the operation.

3) Have it towed .

Do not push your luck and try to drive home without insurance. If you are caught the courts consider this very seriously , not to mention what would happen if you have an accident . . .

If you already have car insurance on another car , the company that you have a policy with which normally covers the new car , even without being told for the first time , to a reasonable amount of time. But if you have no car now, no company will pay the claim in the event of an accident, so its only good if you are paying a premium for car insurance. Do not take the chance, just call your insurance agent and get a verbal binder on the new car until you can process the paperwork.

Erm, I think you can . Do you already covered ( by another car ?) If so, it would be worth giving them a bell and asking them, or just let them know.

I do not see how else would get the car home if you can not have coverage for a certain amount of time to buy another car.

If in doubt , I could not get someone whose full competition ( and is able to drive any vehicle) comes home to you?

Of course not . It should be insured immediately.

can be as long as you have an accident or stopped by the police.

A lot of policies have a " drive any vehicle that does not belong to them , with the permission of the owner " , so it could be argued that still belongs to the other guy until the car is sitting in your driveway.

If you already have another vehicle insurance then in most cases, the coverage is extended to the newly acquired vehicle for 30 days or less. But you have to notify your insurance company so they can issue a temporary insurance card . Also, if you bought a car from a dealer usually will not let you leave the lot without proof of insurance. If you bought the car from an individual, check to see if they still have insurance on the car. Your insurance will cover you until you get the car home. Then you can get your own insurance.

There are plenty of answers at your disposal , but what every one of them fail to mention is that :
if you have another car that is insured , coverage will extend to their new car for 30 days, but you have to make sure that you have and collision in the current policy, because this is what your dealer is concerned .
If you only have responsibility for their current policy will need to either buy only comp / collision coverage from the distributor of a month, or add to your new car insurance. The liability will automatically be extended again.
You have 30 days to add to your new car, before the finance company forceplaces your auto loan insurance on the car (which is MUCH more expensive).

not in the United Kingdom can not be .
Answer13ByroAnswered at 2012-04-30 12:55:13
If you bought it from a dealer who will cover what to get home usually - to ask about it . Often a private seller is still confident it - you can check with them
. Of course , if your house is not far , you can take the risk - drive carefully , and if you tell the police arrested you just bought the car and drive you home.
Otherwise, call your insurance company before you take them home and get covered . You do not need proof of insurance to have insurance on it - despite the police will give you a ticket without proof (if you pull of years).

If you already have insurance on another car, you should be fine . In most states, you have 30 days to add the car to your insurance policy. We must have proof of purchase , so you can be when he bought the car.
Answer17KalilAnswered at 2012-05-12 22:56:07
It depends on what type of coverage you have on your original insurance . Most policies say you can drive any vehicle with the consent of the owner. This applies if you bought the car and are driving yourself. To be on the safe side, a quick call to your insurer to clarify the consultation, could be that you have to pay a few kilos more, but after contacting their insurance companies, this would be immediate and will be fine for which drive you home .
Answer18JamieAnswered at 2012-05-23 14:33:30
If you are already insured with a company of another car, then you can call and coverage must be issued immediately. If not, then you have to get insurance coverage before they drive you home. What happens if you run over or kill someone ? Most companies will issue an immediate temporary cover so there is no excuse.
Answer19crutch Answered at 2012-05-29 20:58:23
Uh no, but you can get your insurance through the telephone exchange to another vehicle before they drive you home.
