You’ve found your perfect Honda, and we couldn’t be more excited for you! However, if you don’t currently have car insurance, you won’t be able to drive your awesome new car, truck, or SUV legally. One of the most common questions we get is: Can I buy a car without car insurance in NC? Unfortunately the answer is no. Therefore, we’ve laid out the process for obtaining car insurance here so you can settle that up and hit the road in your new ride!


Do I Need Insurance Before I Buy A Vehicle in NC?


Yes. Whether you come in during the week or visit us on the weekend, the entire process will go smoothly if you have an insurance policy lined up ahead of time. While you technically can purchase a vehicle without it, you will not be able to drive it anywhere without proof of insurance. Since we cannot legally allow you to take your vehicle home without coverage, getting this step done before you come see our team will mean you can immediately drive home when the purchase is complete.


Can I Add a Vehicle to My Insurance Policy Before I Buy It?


Yes, you can add a vehicle to your insurance policy before you purchase it, which will make your car-buying process much smoother. Come take a test drive, learn about the models on our showroom floor, and let us help you determine the best fit for you. Once you’ve found “The One,” we will happily hold it for you so you can call your insurance agent and set up coverage.
Be sure to have important information on hand, including the VIN number, purchase price, and policy effective date. When you come back to see us, the process will be over before you know it!
