What do I need to buy car insurance?
I was looking on Comparis to get an idea of how much it would cost to insure a second hand car that I am looking to buy. I was given a category P Carte de Légitimation by my workplace, but Comparis only gives you the choice of C, B or L residence permits. Is this just a quirk of their website, or am I not able to buy insurance without one of these permits?
Also as a supplementary question, Comparis complained that my driving licence was issued less than 18 years after my birth. In the UK it is legal to drive from 17, but in any case I am now over 18 anyway. Is this also just a quirk of using an automated web system i.e. would I have to phone any insurance company directly to get round this?
