    Hello , I'm new to the Uber world! Unfortunately I can't get into any rentals. So I decided to just finance my car , I went to a dealership was looking at this Accord SE , I was told to just buy the car and have everything under my name (said the TLC Insurance broker ) . I'm getting ready to buy the Car and the dealer ask me about insurance and I told him it's for tlc and he said "yeah but how you gonna drive the car outta here " and he had a POINT ! ...
    So here is my question do I need to buy insurance AND then buy tlc insurance ?

    I dont know about the insurance.

    Before you make a big purchase be sure and understand if you will make any real money at this.....find some uber drivers (use the passenger app) and go ask some questions.

    Of course you need to buy insurance, you'll be driving the car outside of Rideshare too right?

    NY may be different for TLCs, but I have hybrid insurance that covers my personal driving and rideshare driving. Not sure if such a Rideshare Endorsement is what you mean by TLC insurance?
