What to do After Buying a Car

2018 Chevrolet Malibu Opening Sunroof

Whether you’ve just purchased a new vehicle or you’re still sifting through your options, it’s worth considering what to do after buying a car to stay on top of things. It’s not difficult to learn how to buy a new car, but there are a few paperwork requirements that are important to sort out before you drive into the sunset!

Car Buying Tips

Whether you are leasing or buying, you’ll need to bring along a few documents to ensure a smooth transaction at the dealership:

  • Driver’s License: Of course, you’ll need to bring your license along to test drive the models on the lot! If you’re getting a ride to the dealership, double check your wallet before you leave.
  • Registration: Registration is required to drive on public roads legally, but your dealership may offer temporary registration until you get to the DMV. You may also need an emissions test or bill of sale when you complete your paperwork.
  • Insurance: Your dealership will need proof of insurance, so it might be worth a call to your agent to get everything in line before the big day.
  • Maintenance and repairs: Once you purchase your car, it is important to keep up with scheduled maintenance to avoid extensive repair costs down the road.
