Here's what we need to know about Third Party Liability insurance when buying a new car:

If you have bought an unregistered car, a new import, you must take out compulsory liability insurance. You will need it when registering the car with the Traffic Police. To conclude the policy you must present a contract for the sale of the car. After registering the car with the Traffic Police, you must return to the insurer to present the vehicle ticket.

If you buy a registered car, the seller is obliged to provide you with all documents on the current insurance - policy, control coupon, green card). Once you have the necessary documents, within 7 days, you must notify the insurer or insurance broker of the transaction. This is done with a written request for transfer of insurance rights.
