If you drive your parents car then you are required to be scheduled on your parents policy. Failure to do so would be considered insurance fraud by concealment of a known risk. Such concealment can relieve the insurer of any liabilities should an accident or other loss occur while the concealed driver is operating the vehicle, this means they can deny the claim.

All auto insurance policy contracts do require disclosure of all drivers in the household whether licensed or not. All household drivers must be either scheduled for coverage by name or excluded from coverage by name. If you choose to exclude the driver then no coverage is afforded to that driver under any circumstances if an accident or other loss occurs. They are basically driving uninsured and subject personally to all the liabilities, accompanying fines and penalties of any uninsured driver.

That being said, No, There is no legal requirement of law that all insureds in a household be covered under the same policy nor even the same insurance company, but all drivers must have proof of financial responsibility when operating a motor vehicle on public roads.

Do you have to get insurance after your license?

If you live in a household with an automobile that you use at all or plan on using ever, you would need to get insurance. For example, if you live with your parents and your parents are insured, you would still need to get your own insurance in order to drive their cars. If you do not, you can still drive other people's cars under most circumstances without insurance, you would be covered under the car owner's insurance assuming you use their car with their consent. For a second example, imagine you live with roommates, and one of them lets you borrow their car on occasion. As long as they are insured, you would be fine to use their car.
