Does it take long to get car insurance?

I’m finally getting off of my parents’ car insurance, but I’ve never shopped for car insurance myself. I’m kind of in a hurry to get some since I can’t drive without it. How long does it take to get car insurance?

Getting your own car insurance is a big step! Since you need it quickly, you’re in luck.
You can get same day insurance, meaning it will go into effect immediately after purchase. However, shopping for car insurance can take anywhere from a few hours to multiple days if you aren’t sure where to start.
To start shopping around, you’ll want the following information:
  • Your vehicle’s VIN
  • Your driver’s license number
  • Your Social Security number
  • The type of coverage you’d like
You can then use this information to shop around with multiple car insurance companies, or you use the Jerry app. With Jerry, you can sign up in just 45 seconds for personalized coverage from more than 50 of the nation’s top providers.
