“Your first step is going to be to get your driver’s license. Without a license, you cannot get insurance, and without insurance, you cannot register a car.

Next, you will need a car to insure and register. If you buy a car from a private seller, you will want to make sure they still have insurance on the vehicle before you test-drive it.

Once you know that is the car for you, get car insurance quotes online, get your ID cards, and have the title signed over to your name. Then you are ready to head to the DMV to register your new car.

If you get the car from a dealership, they will help you with the insurance and the registration.

Get the Jerry app on your phone ahead of time so that when you are car shopping, you can get multiple quotes instead of trusting the car salesman to find you the best insurance. “

This app is truly amazing and I recommend it to everyone. They were able to save me over $100/yr on car insurance, and I hardly had to do a thing. They got finalized quotes for me in minutes, and I didn't have to call anyone. They also canceled my old policy, and got me on to my new one for me!
