Your existing car insurance policy will give you some coverage if you buy a new or used Diamante, but unless you are already paying for full coverage, you won't have it until you add the vehicle to your policy.
Once you finish buying your new policy, you will need to print out the proof-of-insurance card that is provided by your new company. This card is proof that you meet the state's minimum liability limits and is required to be kept in your vehicle. Depending on your state's statutes, you may be required to file an SR-22 form if you've been convicted of an uninsured accident, DUI or license suspension. Make sure your new company is aware of this requirement and files it promptly.
