What Paperwork Do You Need When Buying A Car?

What You Need to Bring

Shopping for a car can be a stressful process, especially if you don’t know what to expect or what you’ll need to buy a car. At Lawrence Kia, we pride ourselves on making the car-buying process smooth and easy. Here’s what you’ll need when you come in and shop with us!

Driver’s License

The first thing you’ll need is a valid driver’s license. We will scan your license before you test drive a car, so make sure you grab your wallet before leaving home!

Proof of Insurance
