How can I register for car insurance?

I financed a car from a dealer, but the salesman told me I need proof of insurance before I drive the car off the lot. This is my first time buying a car, and I'm not really sure where to start with this. How do I register for car insurance?

“Congratulations on the new vehicle! It’s a funny thing, given how often registration is mentioned in terms of car insurance, but you don’t really register for car insurance. Instead, you shop for car insurance quotes to select the right policy and insurer for your needs and budget!
Since you financed a car from the dealer, you’ll have to get full coverage. This type of policy includes:
As a heads up, full coverage can run a little pricey. In order to make sure you’re getting the coverage you need for the best price, shop around with Jerry! We’ll get you multiple customized quotes from top-of-the-line providers. That way, all you have to do is pick the policy or provider you want—we’ll even help you get onto the plan officially!
Congrats again on the new car, and best of luck with shopping for coverage!”
