If I only have a UK driving licence, can I get auto insurance from a company in the US?
I just moved to New York and I haven't gotten my state driving license yet. Can I still purchase auto insurance for a car if it's registered in the US?

“Yes, in New York, you should be able to purchase car insurance on a car registered in the state, even with a foreign driver’s license.
Keep in mind, your rates will likely be high until you obtain a state driver’s license and you might have to choose from a limited number of companies willing to offer you insurance. Jerry can help you find the best car insurance rates. To save money in the long run, obtaining a US driver’s license will be your best option. “
