“If you live in Missouri, you don’t need car insurance if you have a learner’s permit, provided you’re driving a car that’s insured by the registered owner.
However, you can get the ball rolling by being added to your parents’ or legal guardian’s insurance now. As long as you provide the insurance company with your license within 30 to 45 days of being added to the policy, you should be fine.”
