What Documents You Need

The first document you’ll need is your ID, be it your driver’s license or state ID. Just remember that you’ll need a valid driver’s license to actually drive the car. Providing Toyota of North Miami with your ID can help us obtain your correct address as well as other vital information about you to add to the paperwork. Once we have your ID we can move to the next document.

The next item you’ll need is proof of insurance if you’re getting a loan through the dealership. If you’re not, you still want to have it on you for reference. And make sure you check with your insurance company before buying a new car as you’ll have new coverage information from them. You may also have new paperwork to file with your insurance company to get the right coverage for your new vehicle.

If you’re trading your old vehicle in, you’ll want to have your vehicle’s title and the vehicle itself. You’ll also want to make sure you clean out the vehicle and remove all paperwork and personal belongings before it’s traded in. Be sure to check the CD player as well as the center console and glove box to get everything out.
