New York Driver's License
You must have liability insurance to cover the other driver's car in the event of an accident. Full coverage insurance is recommended as this will cover the expenses of your car and the other driver's if the accident is your fault.
You need a car, a license and Driver's Education certificates, if applicable, just to show that you have had proper training.
The cost of car insurance varies depending on various factors like your age, how many people will be on your policy, what type of car you will drive, your driving record and the insurance company you choose. Make sure to research your options so that you can find the best car insurance for you.
