New car, new plates - insurance?
As per my other thread on a forum suggestion, I've just purchased an A3 Black Edition for the Mrs.
She's got a private plate which the dealership are going to put on, however this raises the question of insuring the vehicle.
How do I go about getting insurance sorted in advance, when I know that the plate that's currently on the car will change on the day that the insurance will take effect?
Is there any way to do this now, or is it simply a case of using the dealer's 7-day insurance (free, but with an extortionate excess should anything happen) to enable me to get a quote and insure after the plate change?
All I can think of doing is insuring the car on the current plate, and then informing the insurer after the change and just swallowing the inevitable admin fee.
Input from anyone who's done this would be appreciated!
