What is title jumping in Illinois?

title jumping is when you sell a car to person a, then person a sells the car to person b. Person a never changed ownership of the title to their name and person b didn't either. which means your still the owner of the car. I had a friend that sold his car to guy, the guy sold the car to a woman. She got into a terrible accident and by law they were responsible for the accident because the titled owner of the vehicle is financial responsible for liability. He had to prove he was no longer the owner of the vehicle.

How do you get insurance for someone else on a car whose title is in your name?

Just go to your agent and tell him that the other person will be driving your car, either regularly or occassionally. If it is a member of your household (including live-in boy/girlfriend), they should be listed if they are a lisenced driver, regardless of whether or not they ever drive the car. And, yes, if they are on the policy, their driving and accident record will affect your rates.
