This can probably vary from state to state. I was able to add a car registered in my bosses name on my insurance, but he had to listed as another driver. Sometimes the registered person will have to be added to your insurance policy. It may also vary by insurance carrier. your best solution is to call your insurance company and ask them their policy on this or when callin to get insurance quotes - ask.

The owner of the car has to register the vehicle. The person on the registration must insure the vehicle, or be listed to drive that vehicle on a family policy. That example sounds close to insurance fraud so please correct the situation. Sell the car to the other person and they have to insure it.

No. Whoever's name is on the title is going to be on the registration and insurance also. You can pay for the car and title it in somebody elses name, but at that point you've given them a free car, because you have no legal rights to the vehicle at all.

That person is the one that has to set up the insurance because they will be the one legally responsible for it and if you still drive the vehicle, you will have to be added as a driver. Since you are the owner of the vehicle, you would also have a legal responsibility if an accident occurs.

Can you add someone elses car to your insurance policy if they are on the title and it is registered to them?

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. Most companies want an adult child to have their own insurance policy even if they live with you. Call your agent and ask to be sure.

Is it illegal to insure someone else's car in your name?

Yes. You cannot insure anything that you do not own. If you do it is material misrepresentation, voids the contract, and could lead to criminal charges of insurance fraud. The biggest problem is that no payment can be made on the claim because you do not own the vehicle and the true owner cannot be paid because they do not have a contract with the insurance company. You will have to pay the entire claim out of your pocket including for any injuries and property damage to the third party who you hit (if it is your fault).AnswerIf you are to drive someone elses vehicle and you are not named on their policy or not covered to drive the vehiicle on your own vehicle policy, then you must purchase insurance to drive that vehicle.

Can a car registered to someone else be insured by someone else?

Insuring someone elses carYes, Someone else can insure it for driving purposes, However you may have trouble renewing a vehicle annual registration if your jurisdiction requires the registered owner be on the policy.It's usually best to name yourself as well as the owner as covered drivers though. Protect your interests as well as the owners interest in the vehicle you've been given access.When done the right way, you'll have no problem with registration and inspection, you also have full disclosure with your insurer. Failure to disclose could void your policy so honesty is always the best policy.Your Agent can advise you of appropriate coverage for your driving situation and habits.Happy MotoringInsurance on Another persons Car?Yes, You can Insure the property of another person. So Long as you have authorization to do so and the owner is benefited, or an other insurable interest in that property exists.An example would be a case where dad says " OK, you can use my spare car but you gotta get your own coverage".If You have permissive use from the owner of a vehicle, then obviously you have an insurable interest. However, Only the Legal owner of the Property or the designated agent of the owner can receive compensation for the property in the event of a covered property loss.If you are insuring for liability only then this is not an issue. If you buy full property coverage, Then Dad will be proud and happy you were prudent enough to fully insure his and your interest in the vehicle he loaned you.List all drivers for liability purposes and list dad for property and liability interest.Another example would be almost every time we Rent A Car. When we purchase the daily insurance with the rental car we insure our liabilities in the use of Someone Else's Vehicle.You can not insure the property of another when no insurable interest exists. It would be unlawful to insure the property or life of another where the intent is to gain unduly from another persons loss.

Could not afford car insurance let car sit for a while-in a car accident in another vehicle as a passenger-No Fault State-get into trouble for not having insurance the leased car that sat?

This depends on the state. For example in PA if you have a vehicle registered but do not insure it, then your medical claim will be denied. In FL your insurance covers your injures regardless of fault and regardless of the car your in. If you are injured as a passenger in some one elses car your injuries are only covered by the owners insurance if you do not own a vehicle.
