If the car has full coverage and someone else is driving the vehicle will the insurance still cover both vehicles?

A good rule of thumb about car insurance is that the insurance follows the car. So, if you own a car, have full coverage, and loan the vehicle to someone, and that person has an accident, your car insurance will step in to cover both your car's damages and any property damage. This might not be true, however, if the other person is a resident relative (ie, lives in your house) and has access to the vehicle all the time. In a case like that, you could have coverage issues because you didn't tell your carrier that someone else was regularly -- or might regularly be -- driving your car. Your rates are based on you as the driver; you don't pay your carrier to cover someone else.

The un-insured driver will have to turn to their health insurance company for coverage if he carried no auto insurance.

Usually yes. It depends on the brand of insurance though. You should check with your provider to be sure.

Most insurance companies allow household members can be excluded if their drivers license is suspended. By signing an exclusion form this means that there is no coverage at all if the excluded person is driving one of the covered vehicles and a claim occurs.

Underinsured motorist coverage is a coverage in case you have an accident with someone who doesn't have insurance or enough insurance. For example, if someone hits you and they don't have enough coverage to fix your car, your insurance would help you out.

Just because you are denied insurance coverage with one company doesn't mean you will be again. As an independent insurance agent, I represent over 15 different auto insurance companies and if someone is truthful with me I can place them with the company that has the best coverage and rates for their situation and driving record.
