Sure, you can drive the car. It doesn't matter if you're registered or not. And because you are an insured driver, that makes it even better, even if you're not insured to drive that car.

Having the same insurance isn't the issue. The issue is whether or not your state follows a "family doctrine purpose", which covers anyone in the immeadiate family regardless of who is driving, or follows an "ownership statute", which extends the priveledge to anyone driving the car with permission of the insured owner.

Why a family member is resticted in auto insurance?

Some insurance companies will require policyholders to sign a driver exclusion for family members if you claim the individual does not drive your vehicle. If the insurance company has previously paid a claim for an unlisted driver, they may require that you list the driver on your policy or sign a driver exclusion that restricts that driver from driving your vehicle. If a resident of your household has tickets and accidents and is not rated on your policy, the company will require a driver exclusion to prevent increasing your policy if they are rated.

Why do you have to add family members to the insurance of a sports car that they will not drive?

If you read the policy under "definitions" (usually at the beginning of the policy, an "Insured person" includes you or a relative...or any person operating the vehicle with your permission. Your spouse is automatically included, regardless of "permissive use." Since the policy automatically affords such coverage, the underwriters base your premium on such factors as; teenage drivers in the household and driving/accident history of all family members residing with you. Keep in mind; In the event one of your family members took the car without your knowledge, your insurance company is going to cover them in the event they hurt someone else while operating that car.

Whose insurance covers you if you drive a friend's car but only have a learners permit and your parents have the same insurance company?

I hope you're asking this before you need to know, not after.In most cases the insurance is on the car, not the driver, so it would be the car owner's insurance. Generally, the insurance will cover someone driving with the owner's permission, but there could be an exclusion for someone with a learner's permit. You and your friend should know before you drive the car. If we have a driver's license and covered under an insurance company for our car, can we still drive a friends car which is covered under a different insurance company. And which company will cover the car in this scenario.

Is it legal for me to drive a family members car even though im not on the insurance?

Legal depends on the laws in the state in which you live. I doubt it is illegal. However it is not wise. You need to be listed on the insurance as a driver. If you are not listed then you are lying to the insurance company and according to the policy the owner of the vehicle is committing material misrepresentation. This will cause the insurance to be void and if a claim occurs it will be denied by the insurance company. On the insurance application the applicant agreed to immediately notify the insurance company of any household members and anyone who drives the vehicles on the policy. In the policy itself it repeats this requirement as part of the legal contract. I have seen insurance companies deny coverage more and more for this type of activity. This will cause you a world of problems which could easily be avoided by giving the company what they need and have to have to fairly rate the policy. It may not even cost anything to add a driver depending on the age, marital status, and driving record of the person being added. As a matter of full disclosure, I own and operate a small Independent Insurance Company in Central Georgia and have for the past 22 years. Prior to that I worked as an agent for a direct writer of insurance for 3 years.
