You must have insurance on the vehicle as soon as you purchase it. The nice part though, is that, if you already have an insurance policy for another vehicle, or if you are on a family policy and someone else in the family has a car with insurance, and you are listed as a driver on the family policy, that company will most likely cover your new auto purchase for a 15 day period, sometimes even a 30 day period. Check with your insurance agent for exact times as they vary with each company

Insurance is not required to buy a car. It is only needed in some jurisdictions to operate said vehicle.

As with any Insurance Company, as long as you registered the car with your car insurance company, then you are covered either same day or next billing cycle. Usually same day.

As long as she owns the car, has a license, and can afford the insurance she can buy it.
