Depends. If you are paying cash, no. Your insurance will generally cover you for up to 30 days (liability only) to give you time to set it up. You will have to back pay from the date of purchase, but you can do it. If you are financing or leasing, you will need to have insurance proof faxed, but you can do that on the spot. You just call and add the car right there and have them fax proof. Depending on the state, they may only require proof of insurance in general, not necessarily for that specific car.
