How long does it take to get insurance for your car?

I just bought my first car and am ready to hit the road, how long until my insurance is finalized so I can drive?

Congratulations! In most cases, you’ll actually need proof of insurance before driving off the lot, so finalizing car insurance is actually a fairly quick process—often between 10 to 15 minutes.
