Question

When do I need to add my child with a learners permit to car insurance

Does the 30 day grace period apply if we bought a car for our daughter who doesn't turn 16 until 2 more weeks? Should we wait to revise the insurance after she gets her license? Or add the car immediately to our existing policy?

You should add your daughter and the new car to your policy if she'll eventually be driving it once she gets her license. This will prevent the insurance company from having any reason to deny a claim in the event of an accident.
