Couple Buying A Car

Buying from a dealership can be an exciting experience! You arrive on the lot, tour the shiny showroom, test drive your favorite models, talk about your trade-in, and then hopefully drive home in your dream car a short time later. But you don’t want to have to run home and put off buying your car, so Auffenberg Dealer Group is here to help you with a list of essential documents to bring to our O'Fallon showroom when buying a car.

Documents Needed to Buy a Car

  • Driver’s License: Your dealership will likely ask to make a copy of your driver’s license.
  • Proof of Insurance: You’ll need proof of insurance, especially if you’re applying for a car loan at the dealership. Your existing proof-of-insurance card will work just fine. It’s a good idea to talk with your insurance about switching the coverage over to the new model, too.
  • Certificate of Title: If you’re trading in your own vehicle as a part of the transaction, remember to bring along the Certificate of Title to hurry things along.
  • Review What You Want: If you’re shopping for a used car, it’s a good idea to revisit our used car checklist so you can know what you want and be sure to get it.
