If I buy a car right before I move states, do I have to get an insurance policy in the state I bought it?

If you will be registering and living in South Dakota, then you will want to get an insurance policy for the address where you'll be living in that state. Insurance needs to be in the state that the vehicle is registered in.

We will be purchasing our first car shortly before moving from WI to CA. How should we navigate car insurance?

Every state has separate laws, insurance plans, and registrations, but you shouldn't have an issue buying a vehicle in one state and moving to another state. If at all possible, I would wait and buy the vehicle in California — this way, you would only pay all the fees once.

Why does my premium change when I change my address?

Insurance is zip code specific - so moving from one zip code to another can cause your premium to change. Especially if you move into a more crowded urban area (like a downtown area) because there are new factors of risk your insurance company has to compensate for.

How do I get a new policy if I'm between residences?

You will need a permanent address to get a policy with most companies so I would recommend using your previous address until you move to a permanent location. At that point, you can update the address on your policy.

Can I get car insurance without a home address?

Unfortunately it seems like you are in a tough spot until you have moved into your new place. Lots of information is used by insurance companies to determine the rate that they will charge to insure a driver and a major factor in rating that price is your home address.
