When a new car is purchased in Georgia does it need to be insured right away if the purchaser has an existing policy that covers their other vehicles or is there a grace period?
Answer . I can't say specifically for Georgia, but almost any insurance policy will cover a different/additional car for a "reasonable" amount of time. Call your agent and check, preferrably BEFORE you go car shopping..

Most states it's five days. some states allow 30 days. some insurance companies will allow you to roll insurance from one vehicle to another temporarily. but you will still have to get one or the other insured.
No. In the states that require auto insurance, proof of insurance must be provided when you register the car. Some state insurers report insurance electronically to the DMV. Most states require proof of insurance at the time you register your vehicle in the form of an insurance card or endorsement f…orm from your insurer. However, states have different requirements both for proof of insurance and also for liability limits. Your insurance liability limits may not allow you to drive legally in every other state. As of June, 2010, New Hampshire and Virginia are the only states that don't have mandatory insurance laws. Virginia requires the uninsured motorist to pay a $500 fee at the time of registration and at every renewal date. If you get hit by a driver in those states you or your insurance company must pay for your damages and sue the uninsured driver. (MORE)

If you're just looking for a quote then there really aren't any documents you'll need. The quote will just ask some questions, such as what kind of car you drive, how much you expect the drive the vehicle, etc, which you should be able to answer easily. As far as actually purchasing a policy the co…mpany you purchase the policy through will let you know what kind of documents they require. Usually the only time you'll need to submit any kind of special documentation would be if you're disputing some kind of activity on your driving record. (MORE)
Yes. There are basically two ways to do this: You can talk to an insurance company and get insurance on yourselfas a driver to cover your personal liability when driving. This maynot cover damage to the car you're driving, but will cover damageto other people and their property (and that's the kind… ofinsurance states that require insurance care about). The other option would be, as soon as you know what themake/model/VIN of the car you're going to be getting is, to call aninsurance company and get it covered immediately. If you alreadyhave insurance on some other vehicle, they can just add the new oneto your policy. If not it may be a little more complicated ... butnot much. (MORE)
Yes, but most states require insurance before you can register or license the car. Expanded Answer The individual states, almost unanimously, require licensed drivers to carry a certain level of liability insurance. But I do not know of a state that requires proof of insurance as a condition o…f mere ownership of a motor vehicle. This issue has come to the public eye in recent months because of comparisons between state requirements for automobile liability insurance and proposed federal requirements for health insurance. It is claimed by advocates of federally-imposed health care insurance that the mandate is similar to that imposed by most states with regard to automobile liability insurance. (MORE)
Does auto insurance coverage end when the vehicle is sold to a different owner. Who is responsible if that car runs into someone the next day before new insurance is purchased?
This is a mess in many jurisdictions. I have heard of people getting successfully sued like this The trick, if I understand it, is to cancel the plates and insurance before the car leaves your possession.
The cost of auto insurance depends on the model being covered, so you must know at least the kind of car you will buy before the policy becomes active. But you can work with the insurance company or agent to get everything in order so the insurance is ready to go as soon as you own the car. You don…'t need a driver's license to own a car, and thus to buy insurance, but you must have that license before you drive the car on public roads. (MORE)
There are a number of reasons, two of which include: 1. The financial responsibility law of every state requires liability auto insurance as a condition of registration. This ensures that the owner has some minimum level of insurance that will answer to an innocent party if the insured vehicle's dr…iver is negligent (careless) and causes damage to the person or property of the innocent party. 2. If the vehicle is financed, the lender will require collision coverage. This provides a source of money from which the car can be repaired in the event of a collision. The lender is concerned with this because it loaned money based upon the value of the undamaged vehicle. Repair may therefore restore (most) of the value of the repaired car. (MORE)
Do cars purchased from a dealer and taken have insurance before contacting insurance company to change the policy?
Most auto policies will provide coverage to a replacement car for a fixed period of time after it is acquired, under the same terms and conditions as the old car. Policies may vary as to how long the coverage will extend, so it is vital that you contact the insurance agent ASAP and notify him/her of… the change. Note also that there also may be a change in premium if you acquire a new car, as it may be "rated" differently from the old car. "Rating" is the process that an insurer uses to determine the premium. (MORE)

Non Owners Insurance Yes, You can, It's called a Non Owners Insurance policy, also known as an Operators Policy , asopposed to a traditional Owners Policy. In the United States, a Non Owners Auto Insurance Policy is legalin all 50 states. You may have to shop around though as the largerinsurers… that you may be familiar with tend not to offer non ownerscoverage. Some Insurance companies prefer to do business withvehicle owners only or they just don't think tere is enough moneyto be made from Non Owners. There are many people around the United States who do not own avehicle but do hold a drivers license and occasionally drive aborrowed or loaned vehicle. A non Owners Insurance Policy can provide that extra level ofsecurity as well as ensure that you are in compliance with yourstate law by having the appropriate coverage when operating a motorvehicle on public roads. Other Input Yes, but why? You would not be able to tag the car, register it,inspect it, and you couldn't even drive it home. Because of the limitations involved, some dealers may not sell toyou without proof of insurance. Some companies in the UK at least, will insure a driver as opposedto a vehicle. Drivers that deliver cars for instance, have thistype of insurance. In this case you are also issued with a specialset of temporary number plates. Actually "car insurance" has little to do with the car except forthe liability to a lien holder if financed. The insurance is basedon the driver's record and driving history. Some states do allow aperson to purchase a liability policy when operating someone else'svehicle. Truck Driver's have to have commercial insurance forcertain types of vehicles and heavy equipment. You may want tocheck with you local DMV to check the rules and regulations or evencontact an insurance agent that carries auto insurance. In regards to the first answer , the actually physical owner of avehicle does not have to be the insured driver. The fist car Iowned (1964 1/2 Mustang==Thanks Mom) was owned by my Mom. She didnot drive. I insured the car and registered the car. All I had toprove was that the car was insured for liability and collision. (MORE)

Car rental "insurance" is not always insurance. There are three types of coverages you can purchase. 1. Damage waiver is for damage to the car itself. It waives the right of the rental company to pursue renter or his/her insurance for damages to the vehicle. 2. Injury/property coverage is for people… or items in the car. It covers injury to people inside the car if in an accident or loss of property in the event of break in. 3. Liability covers injury or damage to property if the renter or covered driver is at fault in an accident while driving rental car. The last two are insurance and are underwritten by an insurance company partnered with rental company. Damage waiver is not insurance and all three can be voided if the renter or driver are in violation of rental company policies. All three coverages are charged on a daily basis and can be added/removed at anytime. Most companies require vehicle inspection prior to adding coverages to avoid fraud. (MORE)
