Can I buy a vehicle with a learner's permit?
I'm still a few months away from getting my full license. Can I buy a car anyway?
“You can buy a car without a driver’s license as long as you are over 18 years old. However, you will most likely not be able to register the car until you have your license. This could cause issues with obtaining financing, but if you are paying for the car cash, then this shouldn’t be an issue.
As for insurance, drivers with a permit generally don’t need to be listed on an auto policy until they have their license. “
