chessie Posted June 9, 2019 Share Posted June 9, 2019 Oh dear - here's a conundrum for you all.I'm in the process, hopefully, of buying a second-hand car being sold privately.The seller lives locally.The car is RHD, has been reg in France for at least last 10 years, and has a current CT.It is being proposed that the seller and I meet up at the local garage where the car has been regularly maintained. The garage is one of those linked into the new computer system for the ANTS change of ownership/carte gris etc.The seller plans to transfer the car ownership to me, at the garage.But I'm then expected to turn up with all the docs necessary, so that the car can then be registered in my name, with all fees paid - AND with new insurance covering the car from the moment the change of ownership is registered on ANTS via the garage.This is planned to take place in THREE DAYS TIME.........gulpI'm getting a bit confused. How can I insure a car I do not yet own ?Can the sale of the car, and registration of new owner take place, in sequence, in half-an-hour ?I'm insured to drive our two cars, but as an add-on driver (policies in OH's name - see previous post of mine about this problem !!).Presumably I'll need to contact our insurance brokers to get cover, one way or another, to drive this car away once the keys have been handed to me by the present owner (ie the morning of the transaction).Is that possible ?Or am I, as it feels, in a Catch 22 ?Also confused as to what I'll need to bring in the way of docs - can anyone be kind enough to give definite, clear list of all the bumpf necessary (checked on website but can't work out if garage is regarded as 3rd party or not) - and that's making me even more confused.My head hurts - can anyone please help me ?Thanks - Chessie Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
