Is there a temporary insurance policy while I'm test driving a used car to protect me before I actually buy it?

There really isn't a global policy that can be used for what you are needing, nor does "temporary insurance" exist. The good news is most insurance plans are paid month-to-month and have very minimal penalties for canceling — if any penalty at all.

Which insurance companies insure foreign licenses?

Since the car will not be registered in your name, the owner of the car will need to add you as a driver to their policy, instead of you getting your own. If your friend's current company will not accept a foreign license, then they will need to shop around to find something you can be added to.

Zero down payment car insurance

Most "standard" insurance companies don't advertise based on no down payments or being able to pay as you go. This is because they believe it will attract risky clients. Pay as you go is also a very rare policy to find in the insurance world, as most policies are6 to 12 months long. Your best option is to look at non-standard companies (aka smaller companies) or speak with agents directly.
