Obtain or Update Your Car Insurance
Before finalizing your purchase, alert your insurance company so it can add your car to your policy. If you already have insurance, provide proof at the dealership. Alternatively, perform your own research to find a policy that suits you while also following state laws regarding minimum coverage.
