Q. When you buy a new/used vehicle, how long do you have to get your insurance changed to the uninsured vehicle. I was under the impression that it was 30 days from the pruchase date with proof of purchase. A trooper I talked to said its illegal to not have insurance on a vehicle in the state of AK at any time.

Dear Juneau Resident,

Upon reviewing AS 28.22.011 - Motor Vehicle Liability Insurance Required, it appears that the Trooper you spoke with is correct. There are exceptions to the insurance requirement for vehicles being operated in remote places that are not connected to the state highway system where traffic counts are very minimal, but here in Juneau or most of the rest of the State, there is no grace period when you purchase a vehicle.
