So I’m buying a car soon, I haven’t passed my test which isn’t for ages away. I don’t wanna buy provisional insurance / drive the car till I pass.
How do I buy it and not insure it ? Like can I just buy it and not get insurance or what ? I just wanna Insure it for when I pass and not to learn in ??

You can buy it but you need to register it as being "off the road" with the DVLA. This is called a SORN.

As above; buy it, register it as a SORN and keep it off the roads.

Buy it, SORN it. However if it is kept in a place used by the public ie in front of your house on the road, your sorn won't cover it and it'll probably get clamped and seized.

I wouldn't do this. Insurance fluctuates a lot from month to month, something that may or may not be insurable now if you get a good price using your details but doing it as a full license holder might suddenly become unaffordable when you pass - then you're stuck with a car you can't drive.

I'm pretty sure it's unwise to buy a car before you even know how to drive.

Why so? I did it so I could do my test in my car.
