How long does it take to get car insurance?

I want to get my license reinstated, but I need car insurance first. My appointment is later today. How long will it take to get insurance?

“Typically it shouldn’t take longer than 30 minutes to get car insurance.
It will vary depending on how you obtain it, but you should have no problem getting it today.
