they will do it online/over phone
You don't need to register here
int'l drivers license is valid
all you need is proof of insurance through email or fax from Fernet
here's from my link:
I just spoke with Fernet Insurance of Florida.
They handle overseas riders insurance for USA and an ID card for Canada, if you bring or buy motorcycle in USA, then insurance is valid in Canada - but they do not write for Canada specific.
To qualify you must have a motorcycle endorsement from any country.
They are an agent for Dairyland Insurance, and Progressive Insurance, and have a lot of experience with motorcyclists AND groups coming from overseas.
Here is the rates as "sample"
For short term policy , Dairyland insurance, on either USA or foreign registered motorcycle is =
1-30 day = $100.94,
or up to 59 days is $$140 USD,
both policies can be extended - but the cost is the same for each extension.
For US registered bikes and foreign a 1 year policy with Progressive is =
$123 for the entire year or less, depending on motorcycle size, pay the entire year, when you leave simply cancel the policy and Progressive will refund the balance via check or refund to credit card.
You will need a US address for this one, so that the policy can be mailed to you.
You will need, as I said, a US address... if needed or use mine until I get overwhelmed.
There are a few states that the insurance company can not write to, that is if you import or buy a motorcycle in these states, you cannot obtain insurance. BUT, the insurance DOES cover you in these states - you just can't import or buy in them is all - New York and Georgia.
Here is the linky:
It's my understanding that you CAN'T BUY INSURANCE anywhere at USA borders.
