Your Driver’s License

Yes, in order to purchase a vehicle with us here at Lewis Automotive Farmington, you must have proof that you are legally able to drive the car off the lot. Always make sure to bring your Driver’s License to the dealership when you come to make a purchase!


Proof of Car Insurance

Although it is not a hard and fast requirement, many financers require a proof of insurance before approving a loan. If you know you’ll be purchasing the car for sure, acquiring insurance for it before you receive it is not a bad idea. Every bank we work with requires full-coverage insurance to drive the car off the lot. If you have any questions at all, feel free to give us a call anytime at (888)449-7832.

You should also bring the loan account number tied to your trade-in if your trade-in has an unpaid loan associated with it.
