Question

Can I get car insurance with only a permit?

I want to buy a car before I get my license. My plan is to get my license within a month. I just want to know if there is an insurance provider that will allow me to get car insurance before I have my license. Also, I would also like to know if there is a time limit to get my driver's license so I can keep the insurance.
