Check your policy. it will state it there. It differs from Co to Co.

It depends on the policy you have and the dealer you get it from. If your current insurance covers everything you drive, its covered. But if not, than the dealer may offer a 48 hour binder to cover you till you can get to your insurance company.

Can somebody be added to a car insurance policy after the policyholder dies in Louisiana?

After the named insured dies the vehicle would need to be insured under a new policy in the name of the person who inherited the vehicle. For the short period of time that the vehicle and other property are being probated, the legally appointed administrator or executor would have the ability to add and delete drivers. The death of the insured would need to be reported to the insurance company immediately by the executor and the name on the policy would be changed to Estate of " " with the executor listed as additional insured if approved by the insurance company.

Is there a way to suspend coverage on a vehicle that will not be used for a period of time but still keep it insured and reactivate the coverage when you want to drive it?

This is a contradiction: To "keep it insured" is to keep the coverage, not to suspend it. I think you are talking about a storage waiver, which is something a lienholder would be able to discuss with you. If you have a loan on the vehicle, the lender obviously requires you to keep the vehicle insured. If you STORE the vehicle, however, the lender can or may issue a 'storage waiver', allowing you to discontinue coverage for the time the vehicle is in storage. They set the terms and you must talk to your lender first to determine the requirements of the waiver. If you do NOT have a lien on the vehicle, no outstanding loan, then you only need to carry liability coverages. If you intend not to drive it for a period of time, you can cancel the liability coverage for the time the vehicle is in storage/not being driven. For your own security, however, you should be absolutely certain no one else has access to the vehicle during that 'storage' time.

Is it legal to drive an uninsured vehicle in mass with nh plates?

It's not legal to drive an uninsured vehicle, period, and I'm pretty certain every state requires you to maintain insurance in order to keep your tags, so you'd be displaying your New Hampshire number plates illegally if your vehicle was not insured.

Does comprehensive and collision transfer to a new purchased vehicle in Texas?

Yes, If your currently insured vehicle is traded in or upgraded then the newly purchased vehicle is automatically covered for the first 30 days with the exact same coverage as the vehicle you traded in. Within these thirty days you are required to notify your insurer of the vehicle change. Failure to notify the company within the required time period can void or nullify coverage on the newly acquired vehicle. Not that if the Newly purchased vehicle is an additional vehicle purchase, meaning it is not substituting or replacing an already insured vehicle, it may not be covered at all until added to your policy. This will vary by your state insurance laws. you have to notify your insurance company and they will transfer it to you until you can take it in to them to see and fill out forms.

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?

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.

Can you legally drive a car after buying it before you get it registered or insured?

It depends on your local law, but generally speaking you get a temporary registration from the dealer. You will probably have to show proof of insurance to get your permanent registration.
