Best Answer

Insurance is purchased for the car, not the driver. Until the car has been insured it cannot be driven by anyone.

Note that most states do allow a short grace period after you purchase a car in which it can be driven without insurance to let you purchase insurance and handle title/registration paperwork. This grace period does not apply to a car that you have either allowed the insurance to lapse or have removed its insurance.

If you already have another car insured (which it appears you do) and wish to drive a car that is not currently insured, contact your insurance agent and have them temporarily transfer the policy to the other car.

Yes. If the driver is not an insured, the uninsured driver can be ticketed even if the car itself is insured.
