Lien Holders Insurance Indemnity ClauseYes, Your finance contract (Loan) almost always requires that the borrower provide a Full Coverage Auto Insurance Policy on the vehicle being financed to protect the lien holders interest in the property until the loan has been satisfied. It's a matter of your finance contract. Failure of the borrower to provide the coverage required under the terms of the finance agreement puts the borrower in "Default" on the finance note subjecting the vehicle to repossession and other remedies at the lenders disposal. Include All DriversFor Full Coverage, The Insurance policy should be properly in the name of the vehicle owner with any additional drivers listed as additional insureds on the policy. When the vehicle is still under a finance note. The finance company will generally require that the buyer maintain full coverage auto insurance until the note is paid. As this is part of the finance agreement signed by the buyer, failure to do so can subject the vehicle to repossession by the finance company. Operators LiabilityFor liability only, any driver may obtain a liability policy for operation of the vehicle whether they are the owner or not, Since the Driver as well as the vehicle owner can both be held equally liable for any loss regardless of who is driving, most insurers will require you address the insured status of the owner as well. Owners LiabilityThe owner "Name on Title" is just as liable for an accident in the vehicle as the driver is, even though the owner may not have been driving when the accident occurred. If someone was kind enough to sign for you to buy a car, the least you can do is make sure you don't expose them to a lawsuit over a future accident you may have in the car. This is why many states have begun requiring the owner to have sufficient coverage regardless of whether the owner actially drives the car.

Is it possible to have your name on your parents insurance policy if the car loan and the registration are in your name?

This is not a good idea. You need your own insurance policy. There are coverages you do not have by being on your parents policy. You want to be a "named insured". This means that you control the policy and not your parents. If you want to loan your car to anyone you can, if you are on your parents policy you cannot do this. Also if you need to rent a car, you are not covered under your parents policy to do this. You would be under your own policy. Contact your insurance agent for a better explanation.

How can a parent remove a child from an auto insurance policy after he's turned 18 years old and has moved away from home?

Just call up your insurance company/agent, and tell them that you request his name to be removed from your policy. They will then issue you a new policy w/ id cards. Some insurance companies require that the 18 year old has acquired auto insurance elsewhere before removing them from the parent's policy. This may prove difficult for the parent who may be forced by the insurance company to carry auto insurance on their child indefinitely until such a time when insurance can be obtained.

Most insurance companies will not allow insurance to be in a minors name.

If a friend wants to buy your car but doesn't have the credit to get a loan and you keep the car loan and insurance and they pay you the car payment and insurance who is liable if there is an accident?

The person with the insurance. Never allow someone who isn't on the policy to drive the car. * The person who has their name on the title is primarily responsible, so since there is a loan on the car in your name, the title must still be in your name. If your friend crashes the car YOU will be responsible for HIS injuries as well as any damage and injuries to others. If you do not have his name on the policy as the primary driver and the insurance company finds out he was buying the car from you and driving it on a regular basis, they may refuse the claim AND prosecute you for insurance fraud. == ==

Can you find an auto insurance company name from a policy number?

Usually not. While some insurance companies use certain policy numbers to tell someone within the company what type of policy it is, you usually cannot tell what company it is based only on the policy number. For instance, a large number of insurance companies use "PA" as the starting of a policy number sequence for auto insurance. The reason for PA is that it tells company people this is a "Personal Auto" policy. But with many companies using the same prefix it would not tell you which company it is because the rest of the policy number is just a combination of numbers and letters to show different individual policies.
