The seller might require it, but even if you had it, you could argue that the seller's coverage would apply since you hadn't taken possession of the vehicle. Almost always, the insurance follows the car, so if one of the seller's employees had an accident in the car, your carrier might be approached. Most likely, though, your carrier would understand that the vehicle hadn't really been in your possession, or didn't technically belong to you yet, and would advise the seller to look to their own carrier.

Strange request by the seller, though, if that's indeed the case. I'd be wary...

Can the owner of a vehicle get insurance if they are not going to be the driver?

Yes, I recently bought me insurance and they asked if I was going to be the driver or not.

If you co-sign for an car loan and the car registration and insurance are in only your name and you make all of the payments and you have possession of the vehicle does the other person have any right to take the car?

You are confusing me. The primary borrower should have the registration, insurance, and possession of the vehicle, not the cosigner. I am currently going through a situation where I cosigned for a car for my sister. Due to her lack of making payments, I have hired an attorney to try to obtain possession of the vehicle. Both her and I are listed on the registration/title as 'or'. She has possession of the vehicle, the registration (which I obtained a copy of from the Motor Vehicle Office) and carries the insurance. My attorney tells me although I am on the title, registration, and loan, in oder to 'take' the car I have to go to court and have the judge issue a Writ of Possession. This being the case, depending on your state laws (I am in Florida), the other person would likely have to go to court to get the Writ of Possession to take the vehicle from you. I have learned the hard way (I am quite jaded because of this experience) the person who has the car in their possession has most of the rights - regardless of who is making the payments. Hope this helps. DON'T EVER CO-SIGN FOR A CAR FOR ANYBODY NO MATTER WHAT!!! PLEASE LEARN FROM MY MISTAKES!!!

Who is responsible for parking ticket caused by repossession of vehicle?

Well, technically, whoever was in actual physical possession of the vehicle at the time the ticket was issued. However, as the registrant of the vehicle, it's going to be assumed to be on you, and you'll have the burden of proof to show that you weren't in possession of the vehicle at the time the ticket was issued.

When you buy a new car does the dealership have to turn in that information to your insurance company?

No, but unless you are paying cash for the vehicle the lender is going to want insurance coverage on the vehicle until it is paid for in case something happens to it. Therefore, the lender is going to want a policy number insuring their vehicle is covered.

If you just bought a new second car and haven't put insurance on it yet and it hails will insurance cover it anyway and if not why do the dealership need to see proof of insurance?

Auto insurance typically takes effect upon purchase of a vehicle and will include a time & date - you need to have that vehicle insured before it hails. Note that liability insurance doesn't cover hail damage. If you're replacing a vehicle and transferring tags & call your insurance company within the hour of buying the auto, you may be covered. The dealer/seller assumes all liability until insurance coverage is obtained, not necessarily when the vehicle is actually sold. So....the seller is going to want to see that proof of insurance. That should be done concurrently with that sale. E.g., when you test drive a vehicle the vehicle is covered by the dealer's policy(s) and sometimes your own, current liability insurance on a vehicle you own. This all depends on how much risk you are on the road in any vehicle and who currently insures your 1st vehicle. If you don't provide proof of insurance and finance a new vehicle, the lien holder also has an vested interest and wants to be recoup any possible loss. They'll want that proof of full coverage insurance before you get behind the wheel as a new owner. Additionally, if the dealer either arranges financing or they are a finance agent, they're obligated to assure the vehicle is fully insured for their protection of investment before you take possession.

Parked car in neutral hits person who is responsible?

If traffic violation charges were to be placed they would either be against the last operator of the vehicle (if they can be determined), or the owner of the vehicle. After all - the vehicle didn't park ITSELF in neutral, did it? Either way it is definitely going to be the vehicle owner's insurance that is going to have to pay for any injury.

If an out of state driver with no auto insurance has an accident in NJ is their health insurance or the NJ driver's auto insurance primary?

Someone's health insurance is not going to cover any injuries in an auto accident. That covered by the insurance on the vehicle. Since there wasn't any, it would appear the victim(s) only recourse would be to sue. And hope they can collect any judgment they might be awarded. Health Insurance WILL most definitely cover injuries resulting from an automobile accident. Some motoe vehicle insurance policies even have a "health insurance primary" option. The questions was how to determine which is primary , the health insurance or the insured drivers motor vehicle coverage

If your car is a total loss will the insurance company help you fix it if you both pay?

If your car is deemed a total loss, the insurance company will only pay up the value of the vehicle. They will have nothing to do with the repairs. If the vehicle is worth $5,000 and the damage is $8,000, you are going to pay $3,000 out of your own pocket. Once the insurance company pays you that $5,000, they are out of the picture. Just be prepared for a 'salvage' fee to be deducted from your settlement by the insurance company. That is what they would have gotten for your vehicle if you had surrendered it to them.

Is it necessary to insure a car in a driveway?

It may vary from state to state, but in general the answer is no, you generally cannot be cited for failure to maintain insurance on a vehicle if that vehicle is non-operative (i.e., it's parked and not going anywhere). You may have to continue to register it as a non-operative vehicle, however. And if the vehicle is going to move under it's own power again, it will need to be insured.

If your car has a salvage title and is totalledstolen will the insurance company still pay blue book value?

The insurance company is required to pay the actual cash value (normally) of the vehicle prior to the loss. Get prepared to document what your vehicle is worth with a salvage instead of a clean title. Don't expect to get more for the vehicle than you piad for it. Don't expect much at all if the salvage title was given after another insurance company already totaled the vehicle. Honestly - unless this was specifically addressed when you tried to buy comprehensive cover on a salavaged title vehicle, you are going down the road to a "bad faith" claim against an insurance company. (Arguement being - insured was charged full comprehensive rate for the vehicle in question based on value of a clean title, then when a covered total loss is presented, company pays value on a different basis) Check with a lawyer. If at all possible, try to address this when placing coverage, not at the time of a loss. Mark Walters, ARM AAI

If a car was wrecked just before it was to be repossessed is it legal to collect the insurance claim and then turn the vehicle over to the bank?

You can collect it if you want, because the lienholder is going to charge you for not having insurance for as many months as they can, and the amount of what it will cost to get the vehicle repaired. I say give them the check, you will owe less.

If a car is licensed and insured in Wisconsin is the insurance valid if it is driven in Florida for six months?

Sure, the insurance follows the car. Most insurance companies are national anyway, so it shouldn't matter in which state you drive. If the vehicle is out of state for an extended period, such as while going to college, the insurance company should be informed. In most states, if you establish a residence or take a job you have to have your vehicle registered in that state within 30 or 90 days and the insurance company should be notified.
