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.
