Yes! Call and see the agent now! The bank should ask you for proof of insurance or call the agent to confirm... Strange ! Don't you shop around for insurance first prior buying and applying for the loan ?

Buying a car does not involve "loaned money" from a bank. You have a loan. People borrow money from banks. People call insurance companies BEFORE buying a car to make arrangements ahead of time. A lot of information is needed. DO NOT DRIVE A CAR WITHOUT INSURANCE. As to the registration, you cannot drive a car without plates, temporary or otherwise. You can call or visit an DMV to the information you need for temporary 30 day plates AHEAD of time. Call and find out. Otherwise, this car stays put where you buy it, either the seller's home or you home, until the registration and insurance are completed. Good luck.

Get the insurance first before driving.

You can't move an inch unless the car is insured. Get to the DMV on Monday morning. There are no days of grace. Driving uninsured is a serious offence.

In most states you have ten days to get all the paper work finished. I have always bought cars , drive them home,You have abill of sale that covers you to get home.I have drove straight to the insurance office and got it covered a few times, each state is different as to how you have to insure your Car. Here I have called on the phone a time or two and given them the info , and had them bill me. But this is the advantage of being with a local agent,for a decade or more.Some delearships issue a temp that allows you to drive for a few days while you get everything takin car of It really depends on the state. I have purchased cars in California,Oregon,washington Idaho,Montana, Neveda.Texas an Oklahoma, Plus Illinois.
