Why do you have to add family members to the insurance of a sports car that they will not drive?

If you read the policy under "definitions" (usually at the beginning of the policy, an "Insured person" includes you or a relative...or any person operating the vehicle with your permission. Your spouse is automatically included, regardless of "permissive use." Since the policy automatically affords such coverage, the underwriters base your premium on such factors as; teenage drivers in the household and driving/accident history of all family members residing with you. Keep in mind; In the event one of your family members took the car without your knowledge, your insurance company is going to cover them in the event they hurt someone else while operating that car.

If you already have insurance on the family-car, then you can put the sports car on your insurance and tell them you will be the only driver of the sports car. Make sure no one else gets caught driving the car by the insurance company (wreck, etc.). Or look in the yellow-pages in your phonebook, and call several car insurance companies. They should be able to tell you. Always call 3 or more places to get the lowest deal you can, depending on what plan you want or qualify for.

As long as you are sure they have insurance and if you are listed as a drive on such insurance policy. If these cases are both yes then you will be covered under their insurance as long as you have permission to drive the vehicle.

No. If they are going to drive the family car you can, if the insurance company allows it, but they should really have their own insurance.

Sure, you can drive the car. It doesn't matter if you're registered or not. And because you are an insured driver, that makes it even better, even if you're not insured to drive that car. Having the same insurance isn't the issue. The issue is whether or not your state follows a "family doctrine purpose", which covers anyone in the immeadiate family regardless of who is driving, or follows an "ownership statute", which extends the priveledge to anyone driving the car with permission of the insured owner.

In most states insuring a family members vehicle is acceptable. If it is not in your state then the vehicle can be insured in the sons name with you as an additional driver.

You don't need auto insurance if you don't have a vehicle. Even if you were driving your parents' or other family member's car, their insurance should cover you. Every lisenced driver in the household should be listed on their policy, even if they will never drive the vehicle. You still need to have at least liability insurance. Other wise when you do get a vehicle, you will be considered as having a lapse in coverage which in turn makes you a risky client to insure and your premiums will be more. By keeping you on any family members policy will aleave you of this problem. And keep you from paying the higher prices.

If you are a permissive driver (given permission to drive the vehicle by the named insured), your accident would be covered under the owner of the car's policy. The insurance follows the vehicle, not necessarily the driver. You might want to check the owner's policy. I've seen a clause that specifically excludes damage caused by another vehicle insured by the same person.

It is not important for people to drive with auto insurance.

The average American family drives their car 15,000 miles per year. The more you drive your car, the more your insurance company will want to charge you.

American Family for reliability and insurability. TheGeneral for affordability and legal to drive purposes.

I wouldn't see why not. Insurance will cover any accident she has, only because she is family.

Some insurance companies will require policyholders to sign a driver exclusion for family members if you claim the individual does not drive your vehicle. If the insurance company has previously paid a claim for an unlisted driver, they may require that you list the driver on your policy or sign a driver exclusion that restricts that driver from driving your vehicle. If a resident of your household has tickets and accidents and is not rated on your policy, the company will require a driver exclusion to prevent increasing your policy if they are rated.

Well, it is high recommended that family members help their family members with drug addictions lose their drug addictions by sending them to rehabs. However, the results solely depends on the patients' motivation and drive.
