Typically yes, unless that person was specifically excluded, in writting, from that particular policy. It is important to transfer the title and insurance as quickly as possible to lessen the chance of complications in the event of an accident. It entierly depends, some policies are named driver policies & you will not be covered unless you specifically add the new driver to the policy. Be aware tho that the insurance should always match the registration of the vehicle.

Do you need car insurance if you do not own a vehicle but drive another persons vehicle?

You dont NEED insurance in that case you are covered under what is called 'permissive use' on the owners policy, permissive use does not mean you drive the vehicle frequently (not more than 10-20% of the time) but you have the permission to drive the vehicle from the owner/policyholder. You can get "Non Owner" insurance policies in some states that dont require you to actually own a vehicle, this is in SOME states and your driving record needs to be pretty nice looking but it is available.

If you have liability insurance on one vehicle are you insured if you drive another vehicle?

Auto insurance typically covers the car, not the driver. So, if you have insurance on your vehicle, but you drive another vehicle that doesn't have insurance, you are not protected by your policy if you have an accident in that other vehicle. However, if you have insurance on your vehicle, and you lend it to a driver (from another household) who does not have his or her own insurance, they will be covered by your policy while they are driving your car.

Does your insurance policy follow you if driving someone elses car?

No, in the state of Mass where i am from, the insurance is covered for your car only. It will not follow you if you choose to drive another vehicle. You may want to check the state your are in if this is different, as they may have a different type of policy you can purchase that will cover you. With my experience, the only insurance you have is your health insurance if you are driving another persons vehicle.
