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.

Coverage & Claims

If I have car insurance, can I test drive a car that has no insurance?

Yes, most companies in Alabama will cover you to drive another vehicle, especially just to test drive it. You can always call your specific insurance company to find out what their coverage entails.

I damaged a vehicle I was test driving with no insurance

The dealership should have insurance to cover incidents during test drives. They would file a claim for the vehicle damage.

If I'm involved in a wreck while test driving a car, will my insurance cover the damage?

When test driving a car from a private seller, the liability portion of your policy is what pays for damage you cause to someone else while driving so the fact that you don't have collision coverage won't keep the vehicle you hit from being repaired. As for the vehicle you were actually driving, you may have to file a claim with the car owner's insurance company since your policy does not include collision.
