dude you have to get insurance before you buy the car. When you register the car at the MTO they will ask for insurance before you can have plates. But never buy a car without know the price of insurance for the year. Next thing you know you can't afford it. I bought a used car last year and I didn't have insurance, I really knew nothing and the seller snuck in his insurance paper instead so they thought it was for me and I didn't know jack and when I went to get insurance they ask me how I got the car and I said they just gave me plates but then found out later. And if you have the car before you have insurance, it puts you in the lowest ranking which cost more which is why I had to sell the car to a family member so they can have insurance before the car. Luckily they didn't charge tax when they were suppose to when selling to sibs.
