Dear brother in Islam,

Wa'laikumus-salam

Insurance is allowed only in the circumstances of dire need or when it is made compulsory by Govt. In your case if you are not allowed to drive the car without getting insurance you may have insurance of your car. (Jadeed Fiqhee Mabaahis vol.4 p. 572)
Allah knows best.
