Can you get car insurance in Georgia on a car that is not in your name?

No. You cannot insure a vehicle that you do not own. The only exception to this is in a family situation where a married duo has one vehicle in one name and the other vehicle in the other name. I always recommend that the insurance be listed in both names to prevent any problems and to permit both parties to make switches and sign documents. The fact is that you cannot insure something that you don’t own because if the property is bruised you have no financial loss so the company cannot pay you and since they don’t have a contract with the holder of the vehicle they can’t pay them either. If you buy insurance on a vehicle you don’t own then you have committed material misrepresentation on the insurance application and the insurance contract is null and void. Simply don’t do it.

In America, in general, repossession is done by repo dudes, and theyare permitted to repossess objects used as the object of a loan, aslong as they announce the repossession to the (former) possessor. Thereason many TV shows about repo guys demonstrate them as being careful and”ready for anything” is because being legally right is littleconsolation if you are physically assaulted or even killed in theprocess.

Does an arresting officer have to read your rights in Georgia for traffic arrest?

In Georgia and elsewhere in the United States, an officer is required to advise someone of theirMirandarights only if all four of these conditions apply: .
the person must be detained, e.g. not free to leave, .
the person is or is about to be questioned about details that exceed typical booking or identification questions, .
the concentrate of the investigation is that person, and, .
the questions are about the details of the crime or investigation. In traffic matters such as DUI and driving with a suspended license, probable cause for the arrest is typically gathered before the arrest is made, and there is no need to question the arrestee after the arrest is made. Therefore, an officer would not normally have to give aMirandawarning at the time of arrest. If the officer did not give aMirandawarning and later questioned the arrestee about details of the offense, information gathered during that questioning would be suppressed in court. Evidence gathered prior to the post-arrest questioning would still be permitted, and the arrest would likely still be valid. In other words, you don’t walk on the charge just because the officer didn’t read you your rights.

Can you get gap insurance in Georgia after you buy your car?

Sure. You are much better off to get GAP insurance from your insurance company than by buying it from the dealer. If you buy from the dealer you will pay lots of money for the insurance plus you pay for GAP insurance for the life of the loan in advance then pay interest on it as it is financed in your loan. GAP insurance is coverage for the difference in the actual cash value of the vehicle and the amount owed on the vehicle. Reason shows that you will only be upside down in your loan when you very first buy a fresh car because the value decrease prompt the very first year while the loan doesn’t reduce as rapid. You can purchase GAP coverage from your insurance company for a few dollars ($5-10) for a policy period and when the loan balance drops below the value of the car you can drop it. Say the very first two years of a five year loan you owe more than the value tho’ it is most likely less. For two years you may pay $40 for the coverage from an insurance company then drop the coverage. From the dealer you paid $850 plus interest and you can’t cancel it even tho’ it will not pay off anything after the very first two years. To response your question, most insurance companies will let you add GAP coverage for the very first 6 months after you add the car to your policy.
