A parent or other adult can purchase insurance for a minor. A minor might not be able to make the payments on a policy.

Yes, you can have your own auto insurance policy. If you are a minor though, you will need your legal gaurdian to countersign your application for insurance coverage.

If you can show your insurance co. that your child lives on their own AND has their own car insurance, you should be able to get your child OFF of your policy

No. Most insurance companies do not allow a minor to have their own policy because an insurance policy and application are a legal contract and a minor cannot generally be party to a legal contract. I do know of a couple of insurance companies that overlook this and allow even a 16 year old to buy a policy.

No. A minor is a person who is not of legal age to sign a contract and an insurance policy is a legal contract. A minor may or may not have the ability, depending on state laws and regulations to own a vehicle.

In the state of Florida a minor cannot have an auto insurance policy unless a parent signs for it. Usually if said minor lives with their parents they are usually just put on their parent's policy

Full liability, as the child is still a minor and the parents are responsible; on the other hand, at the age of 17, a teenager cannot legally enter in a contract, so the insurance policy is void and the insurance becomes just as liable.

No. An insurance policy is a kind of contract, and a contract cannot be enforced against a minor. An insurance company would be foolish to issue a policy whose conditions could not be enforced.

That depends on weather or not your 17 year old has their insurance on the parents policy. It will go up if the child is on the parents policy, but if the child has their own policy, it won't. But it will be cheaper if the child is added on to the parents policy. My husband is a North Carolina State Trooper so I know alot about insurance. Also, call around and go online for the cheapest rates.

Usually the answer to this question is no. Rarely an insurance company will let a 17 year old take out a policy on their own if they legally own the vehicle as well. Because an insurance policy is a legal contract that usually means that you must be 18 in order to sign the policy application.

Yes, parents and children have an insurable interest, so you can have a life insurance policy on your son and daughter-in-law. If they both happen to die prematurely and minor children will become your responsibility, then life insurance is not only justified, but needed.

No. Absolutely not. You cannot insure a vehicle that you do not own. The only exemption of this is if the owner and insured are married and live together or a dependent child living at home.
