Is it possible to buy a vehicle and insure it vehicle under your own name in canada, being under the age of majority, without a parent?
the reason I'm asking is I want to buy a vehicle, and I can afford it on my own, but I am 17 years old and I want to know whether I need a parent to sign for me when I want to have my own insurance. If so, does it need to be a parent or can it be anyone over the age of 18?
Until you're 18 or married, you can't get an insurance policy put in your own name. It'll have to be in your parent's or guardian's name. You're not a competent party until one of those two things happen and if you aren't a competent party, you can't legally obtain any sort of insurance in your name. Having your own policy in your own name won't be really expensive - it's really impossible!
Choose the best company for auto insurance for your teens. Check many sites on net and compare all of them as I also did the same and took the policy from online-autoinsurance.net.
This reminds me of people I knew who grew up on farms who were minors, who had project cars that they'd drive on their parents' property - But I assume that jessica's referring to driving on public roads.
