If the child is a lisenced driver living in your household, the insurance company assumes that he will drive the car. It is possible to have an exclusion added to the policy (more likely to be the company's decision after the minor has had 3 or 4 claims) that states the child will not drive it. If you have this exclusion, there is NO COVERAGE IF THE KID IS DRIVING, so don't even let him back it out of the garage. In a nut shell, because they do not believe that the child won't ever drive the car, and actuarial experience bears out that they are right. Odds are that sooner or later most parents will let the child drive the car "just this one time...". As mentioned above, most states allow insurers to exclude an operator from coverage and thereby reduce the premium accordingly, but be aware that if the child is the operator in an accident of significant proportions, your financial life could be profoundly effected. In other words, if he/she seriously injures or kills someone, and you are found liable, well.... let's just say it won't be pretty. Think VERY carefully before selecting this option. If he/she is not living in your household (and has a legal address elsewhere but the car is NOT pricipally kept there), none of the above applies. As long as they are licensed and operating the vehicle with your permission (and do NOT do so on a regular and frequent basis), there would be coverage. You are required to add a child to the policy because almost every policy is a family policy, in that every resident relative is covered to drive your vehicles contractually whether or not they are listed as an operator on the policy. See your Definitions section of the contract for 'insured driver'. What that means is that the company is legally on the hook for paying if they drive or not, so they are deffinitely going to collect the premium for it. A NDE (Named Driver Exclusion) is a possibility, but be warned: these are usually underwriting decisions by the company (We'll nonrenew you unless you sign this NDE for your son who has had 4 accidents in the past 3 years.) so if you ASK for an NDE and one is applied, it will still be considered generally as though the company asked you to have one when you want it to come off. In that the company may NOT WANT to take it off, may have some guidelines (no accidents/tickets in past 3 years for example) for when one can come off.
In the state of Texas you do not have to list your child on your policy. If living in your home you can enlist a separate policy for that child. If living in another home it is never a requirement to have them on your policy although there are some policies which certain insurance companies write which require the child on your policy while living in your residence.
As long as you let the insurance company know that you are married and the reason she will never drive the vehicle.
She can buy a new policy all day long and claim she had never had a policy cancel if: 1. She is the only person on the deed to the house. 2. She never had a policy cancel.
== == The insurance company COULD cancel your insurance, because you allowed some body, who was NOT covered on your insurance policy, to drive your car. They COULD also refuse to pay to fix the car, as the driver was UN-INSURED by them. You have no one to blame, other than yourself, for all this trouble. Never allow anyone to drive your car, if they are not NAMED on your insurance policy.
No. Your Car is covered by your Auto Insurance Policy. It is never covered by a homeowners policy no matter whose property it is on.
You usually have the obligation to list all household residents and regular drivers on your insurance policy. If we are talking about your Grandparents who live in another state and never drive your can then no. If it is your sister who lives with you and borrows your car occasionally then yes she must be listed as a driver.
No, Non Owners often referred to as Named Driver insurance never covers a company vehicle. It is the responsibility of your company to provide insurance for it's employees when driving a company vehicle.
It goes to the estate
you will likely have to 'exclude' this child from your policy....and this means NEVER EVER EVER let him drive if he is excluded...if you do and he's in an accident there will be NO coverage at all for your vehicle or the other parties........
Most policies state that you have to notify them of all household members and drivers of the vehicle. This is something that you have agreed to do in the insurance contract. Many insurance companies will allow you to exclude the person from your insurance policy if they absolutely do not drive the vehicle. When you sign an exclusion you are agreeing that not only does the person never drive your vehicle but also that if this person does drive for any reason there is no coverage under the policy while he is driving. If you get sick and cannot drive but your boyfriend does and has a wreck they pay nothing. In order for a person to be covered they must be listed on the policy and any premium for them must be paid. Doesn't that sound fair. They are covered only if you pay for them to be covered.
Contact your agent or policy services dept for the insurance company you have, they will be able to help you if the vehicle is in your name your daughter can be listed as the principle driver, you will likely be on the policy as the owner of course, there shouldn't be any problems.
