Can you register a car without auto insurance?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Savannah on December 27, 2020

I'm going to buy a car, but I want to hold off on buying the insurance since I won't start driving it right away. Can I register the car anyway?

It depends on the state. Some states are okay with this and some are not. I recommend checking with your local DMV or asking the dealership you are buying the car from to find out if you can register a car without insurance in your state.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
