It’s my first time getting my own insurance policy after being covered under my parents’. What do I do?

I was previously covered under my parents’ insurance, but now that I'm moving out, my parents are gifting me a car and I have to get insurance in my name. I'm not sure how to answer some of the questions on the application, such as “Have you had auto insurance in the past 30 days?” and others. How do I go about getting a policy for the first time?

If you were listed as a driver under your parents’ policy, you would be considered covered by insurance for however long you were on their policy. Be sure to shop around for your new policy before your parents remove you from theirs to avoid a lapse in coverage.
