If the car is being repaired, no. Usually they will require one signature from you and one from the shop of your choice, usually the shop is agreed or decided upon prior to check issuance. If the car is totaled, the insurance will pay you up to your cars book value and you're free to do whatever you wish with the money.

If a speeding citaton is given with company insurance info instead of personal whose insurance and record is affected?

When a speeding citation is given, it is given to the driver... not the owner of the vehicle nor the person (or company) who is insuring the vehicle. Therefore, the driver's insurance and driving record will reflect the charge. If this person was driving a company vehicle (and therefore insurance paid by the company) then the companies insurance policy COULD be affected but not always. The cost of corporate insurance policies that cover multiple vehicle and/or drivers are determined by many factors such as # of vehicles, types of vehicles, company claim history, # of drivers and ages there of. Most companies must report their drivers information to the insurance company which will then check the drivers records which will then allow the insurance company to 'rate that driver' and asses a cost for insuring that driver. Some companies will refuse employ drivers with too many moving violations... or not let them drive company vehicles. I hope the answered your question.

Absolutely not. They should not even be asking for your drivers license number.

Insurance companies not only check with the motor vehicle department for your driving record, they also have an insurance company system called C.L.U.E. which includes any and all claims paid as well as past drivers, insurance policies, and people who have lived at your address. On the insurance application you are asked for all this information. if you don't tell the truth the insurance company and usually the agent will know it immediately. It pays to tell the truth. I know this as an independent insurance agent.
