You only have to report if another car is involved and if the damage is over $5000. If you want to pay for the fix yourself, you can.

Is your 17 year old licensed daughter covered if she drives your cars covered for insurance?

If your teen is a Licensed Driver and a member of your household or a minor ward and you have failed to disclose (Concealed Drivers Fraud) by adding them to your insurance policy, then she is not a covered driver under the terms and definitions of your auto insurance policy. However, Since parents are liable under the law for the acts of a minor child, Your insurance company may be required to pay for the accident as a negligence claim against the insured parent. If your insurer determines fraud on your part, they are not required to pay any claims arising out of fraud. In fact the law prohibits the insurance company from paying known fraud claims. Depending on the internal operating policies of your insurer, they may or may not cancel the policy if concealment and negligence are determined.

If a friend drives your car and is charged with DUI and gets in an accident does your collision coverage cover the damages?

depends on your and his insurance, generally insurance follows the driver not the car. so your insurance shouldn't care, their insurance should pay for everything. If they don't have insurance, then your uninsured motorist might cover it. It depends entirely on your company, but if your company pays then your premiums will go up. The person they hit should have insurance that may cover it. I see no reason why your insurance should be involved.

Who should be on your car insurance?

Generally speaking, just you. In the U.S. in most states, your insurance covers anyone who drives the car (in the insurance business, there is a saying, "When you loan your car, you also loan your insurance). However, if there is someone who regularly drives your car besides you, you may want to have them listed as a driver.

Are you paying more for car insurance because the other person has same address?

This is another case of where the CLUE system shows someone who gets their mail at your address. This simply gives the insurance company a reason to ask you if this person lives in your household and should they be listed as a driver on your insurance application. If the person never drives your vehicles then you just state this to company in writing and there is no charge for that person on your insurance. You just need to remember that you stated this to the company so then don't lend them your car because they will not be covered.
