If the vehicle not listed on the policy is a new car that you have recently purchased, you generally have 30 to notify your insurance company of the change. If the vehicle you are driving is just a friends car then, no. Insurance is primary to the vehicle and it is important that the owner of the car have insurance on it and that any drivers of the car be listed as covered on their policy. There are exceptions to everything and these rules will vary by company. It's best to check directly with your insurance company for questions like this.

Is it legal to drive a car that is not insured on your insurance?

It is illegal to drive a car that is not insured for at least third party cover (i.e. if you hit someone then they - but not you - will get paid out). Therefore if the car is not covered on an insurance policy that YOU have then to drive it you would need to be covered on someone else's insurance. Some people hold insurance policies that allow anyone (with permission from the owner) with a valid license to drive the car and in this case you would b covered on this policy - many company cars have this sort of policy. It is you DUTY to make sure that you/the car has as covering policy before you drive it and that you can PRODUCE this policy for the police should they require you to do so.

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.


Can I have Auto insurance without a car?

Ask an insurance company for a "broadform" policy. That will cover you for any car you drive. Yes, although it's rather pointless. Why pay for insurance on something that you don't even have or own ... there is no need. If you drive someone else's car, you are covered under their insurance policy, provided you have their permission to drive it.


If you live in NJ and a relative with a MA license but no insurance is staying with you is he covered under your insurance when driving your car?

Yes, they would be covered as long as they only drive occasionally. If they drive more than 12 times out of the year, they would need to be rated on your policy in order for them to be covered.


If you dont have an automoble Can you put insurance on your drivers license?

No. Auto insurance is just that ... an insurance policy for the automobile, and those who ride in it or drive it. If you have the full permission to drive someone else's car, and they have the proper auto insurance in full effect, then you are covered under their policy. If you are going to be driving their vehicle most of the time, then they need to add your name to the policy.


Can you drive a car your daughter has just purchased if you have your own insurance?

Can I drive my parent's car if they are in the car when I am not insured but they are?

Everyone in your household must be listed on your insurance policy if they have a license. For example, if you live with your parents, you may not be covered if you are not listed on their insurance policy. On the other hand, if you live separately you could use their car with their permission and be covered.


Is it legal for a resident of the same household to drive an insured vehicle if they are not specifically covered under that policy?

You can drive an insured vehicle if you're not on the policy because when the police pull you over they are looking to see if you have insurance on the car. But to answer the question...NO, it's not legal to drive the insured vehicle if your not on the policy. As always, check with your insurance agent, but anyone driving the auto with the policy owner's permission should be covered. However, ALL licensed drivers residing in the household are supposed to be listed on the policy.


Can you drive a car which has no insurance policy but you have a insurance policy on another car?

Depends on the state and your insurance policy. call your local agent.


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.


Can you drive a car if you don't have insurance but the car does you have a License?

All drivers are required by law to carry proof of Financial Responsibility. So if you are an insured driver under the terms of the Auto Insurance Contract then you are covered to drive it. If you are not an insured under the terms of that policy then you are not covered. Remember, Vehicles do not drive themselves and vehicles do not carry insurance, People do. Auto Insurance Is to cover the losses and legal liabilities of the Insured.


Who is covered under your insurance policy Will your insurance cover your niece to drive your car?

Do you have to add live in boyfriend to car insurance if not driving but licensed?

Most policies state that you have to notify them of all household members and drivers of the vehicle. This is something that you have agreed to do in the insurance contract. Many insurance companies will allow you to exclude the person from your insurance policy if they absolutely do not drive the vehicle. When you sign an exclusion you are agreeing that not only does the person never drive your vehicle but also that if this person does drive for any reason there is no coverage under the policy while he is driving. If you get sick and cannot drive but your boyfriend does and has a wreck they pay nothing. In order for a person to be covered they must be listed on the policy and any premium for them must be paid. Doesn't that sound fair. They are covered only if you pay for them to be covered.



If your husband dies and you are a named driver on his comprehensive car policy are you covered to drive his car after his death?

In the UK no. The main policyholder has to be living for the insurance to be valid. Check with your insurance provider for clarification

You should double check with your insurance company to see how your policy is written, but usually your insurance would kick in as secondary coverage and you would be covered.


If you drive a car with no insurance are you legally intitled to drive it on your car insurance?

That depends, because there are many different insurance coverages. You'll need to check your own car insurance policy and see if it covers you AND any car that you are driving. If you can't find that information anywhere in the policy then check with your insurance broker and ask. Sorry, but without actually reading YOUR policy that's the best answer I can give.


If i drive my moms car and i live with her but im not on the policy and i get in an accident is the car covered?
