Hello there!

I am looking in to buying a new car,
before ordering it I want to compare offers for car insurances, but when I call a car insurrance I am told to get the car registration number. I have tried to find on the transportation office website the details on how to do so but I can't find how to do for a car not in circulation yet.

Any Idea?

If its a new car it’s only assigned a registration number after it has been delivered to the dealer. One tip is to look for a similar new car that’s for sale, check on for eg. And use one of those registration numbers for insurance quotes. It won’t be 100% accurate but very close.

Ask the dealer for an insurance quote, they are usually associated with someone, they might even give you the first year very cheap.

Just to add (as I have just bought a new car - awaiting delivery smile.gif ) the insurance company should be able to give you a quote based on the fact that it is **NEW** car.

You shouldn't need to give a registration number. All you need is the make, model, engine size and trim roughly (this isn't always required) and more importantly - your age, how long you have held you license and where it is valid - and finally the number of miles you will travel in a year. Address and some idea of where it will park won't harm you either. THIS IS FUNDAMENTALLY ALL YOU NEED FOR A QUOTE.

For a used car, you will need the registration number but you could just get this from any car you are looking at.

Plus, remember that if it is a new car, you only need 1/2 insurance for the first 2-3 years so that should be significantly cheaper. Also, depending on who you are buying the car from, you should be able to get a pretty competitive price from the dealer and in some cases cheaper (mine was actually cheaper with the dealer through IF).
