Car insurance during move
I'm moving to the Netherlands and was going to bring a car along as part of the move.
From what I understand, I have 6 - 8 weeks from the move before I need to register the car. My question is what happens to insurance during this transition period when the car still has UK plates, but I am now living in the Netherlands. I know I will have to update my current UK insurer about the address change, and I assume that they're going to cancel the policy? Dutch insurers seem to require a Dutch number plate before giving me an insurance quote. This seems like a catch 22 to me.
Any ideas about staying insured during this transition?
