We thought this was a great question to share.
Can I buy car insurance with my learner’s permit? Because I want to buy a car and I haven’t got my driver license yet.
ANSWER: You can own and insure a car in Mass but you must have a person to List besides yourself as a licensed Mass Driver. Not all companies will allow but we have one that will allow this.
Let me know if you want a quote.
I will need the person’s license number who you will list as the licensed driver. You will notice once you inform the Insurance Agency or Company that you have obtained a Driver’s License the insurance premium will go up. This is because you are not a listed driver on the policy until you get your license. The experienced person you listed as the licensed driver was rated but now you as the new driver will be rated.
