New York State Insurance - foreign licence?

Can anyone recommend a NY State insurer who will provide cover if you have a foreign licence (UK)?

I've had a hell of a day. I have bought a Harley and want to register it so I can get some licence plates and begin my trip. I had cover from Dairyland, but they are based in Wisconsin so the New York DMV rejected that insurance and won't allow me to register until I get cover from a NY State insurance company.

I've called Allstate, Progressive, Geico, Nationwide, and about 12 brokers, and ended up with nothing, because they all want a US drivers licence. Surely someone will recognise a UK licence? I even have the International Driving Permit!

8 years of no claims, no accidents, no convictions, but still no insurance! Frustrating!

Any help/suggestions gratefully received!

NY DMV can be a pain in the ass!!

Not sure why they are telling you need a NY insurance company. Al you need is a NY insurance CARD. Call Dairyland and have them issue a NYS Insurance Card.

Also try posting in this forum..... http://advrider.com/forums/forumdisplay.php?f=51

Good luck!
