If you have a loan againest the car you need to contact your insurance company with information about the car before you can drive off the lot. If your insurance company is closed, you will need to contact them the first thing the next business day. Most insurance companies will cover you on the car your are buying but need all the information right away to give you a quote and have you send them monies for the premium.
