    Q422: I am going to buy a car at an auction, is it ok if I drive it home and then get insurance?

    No, before you drive any motor vehicle on a road you must have insurance. You must not drive a motor vehicle until you have insurance. If you drive an uninsured vehicle on the road you could be prosecuted and your vehicle could be seized.
