Visiting the US from the UK for 3 months - can I buy a car in New York?

Asked by Nov 16, 2015 at 06:07 PM

Question type: General


I'm going to be driving around the US for 3 months and it will be cheaper
for me to buy a car than to rent one for the whole time. However I have a
UK driving license and address. Will I be able to buy and register a car +
get insurance?

I don't know why not. I would buy a good used one that you can sell fast and cheap when you go home.

Ring Geico there the cheapest quote I got whilst out there. Driving licence, U.K. Ins details no claims, national ins number etc. Was told having an international driving licence helps too (from post office I think). Hope that helps
