You can add your roommate to your auto policy as a driver but you cannot add their vehicle to your policy. You cannot insure a vehicle you do not own and since you have no legal relationship with a roommate you cannot add a vehicle they own to your policy. You do have an obligation to add them as a driver on your policy if they ever drive your car.

Do you need car insurance in all states?

That depends on exactly what you mean, but the answer is probably yes. If you drive, but do not own a car (or live in a household where anyone owns a car), you may not need car insurance. For example, a college student living with roommates, without a car, is covered by his/her roommate's car insurance if they borrow the car every once in a while (assuming the roommate has automobile insurance). If you are renting a car and do not have automobile insurance, you can purchase temporary insurance through the car rental company for the duration that you have the car. Also, most insurance companies are required to cover any accidents that occur during a temporarily lapsed policy (if you are a week late renewing your insurance, for example). In almost any other circumstance, if you are anywhere in the United States and you are on the road behind the wheel of a car, it is a serious crime to be driving a car without insurance.
