    I've always wondered if you were to buy a car or motorbike from a dealer / 2nd hand dealer, and you want to drive it away the same day how do you sort out the insurance.

    I mean if i was going to see a car / motorbike and decided i want to buy it, how would i tell the insurance company, can they sort it so i can take it in a few hours or what?

    Can you drive away the same day you see the car? And how long does it take to get you insured?

    The insurance company can start the insurance from when you say. Normally from when i get off the phone with them. Or you can agree to start on x date and get the car then.

    I've had it start from immediately, to specify in 45 minutes, or on a set date at 8am. Thats using express and the aa and admiral.

    It won't show on the police database, however if the police ring the company to check you will have valid insurance
