Bob Hatton is right, not having a permanent address as such may affect your insurance quote as insurance is based around a postcode. It will be difficult to buy a car in UK without at least a permanent address. So you have to resolve this question first. After that, you can buy a used car anywhere you want. For example, I bought mine a year ago I graduated from school and took the Mitsubishi Eclipse. I bought it after I sold my father's car to a removal service. They paid me about $10,000 for an old Nissan. That's nice, isn't it?
