How long do I have to add insurance on a new car?

I want to buy a new Bronco at the end of October, but I haven't decided on the insurance coverage I want yet. How long do you have to add an insurance policy after buying a new car?

A Bronco is a sweet car, so you’ll want a good policy to protect it.
As most states require drivers to carry liability insurance before they can legally drive, it is recommended that you acquire a car insurance policy immediately after purchasing a vehicle.
In fact, you often have to have proof of insurance before driving away from the dealership.
If you have an existing insurance policy and are looking to add your new car to it, you may have a grace period of 14-30 days, but it depends on your provider. It’s best to contact your provider directly to confirm their policy.
