How long will it take to get car insurance?

I’m planning to officially buy a new car in a couple days, and I know I still need to get it insured. How long will it take to get car insurance?

Congrats on the new car! I’m happy to say that getting car insurance doesn’t take very long, and can go into effect the same day you apply in some cases.
To apply for car insurance, you’ll need to have your personal information on hand. This usually includes your name, age, Social Security number, and driving history. You’ll also need to know your new car’s make, model, year, and *vehicle identification number VIN).
