If you are driving a car in the state of Illinois, then you need to carry insurance on the vehicle. Uninsured motorists can get insurance at affordable rates if they know where to look. There is a minimum amount of coverage that the driver needs to have on their insurance. This amount is not high so that drivers can get insurance coverage at an affordable rate. However, if a driver wants to take a risk and let someone else drive their car, they need to carry uninsured motorist insurance on their policy. The minimum amount for this coverage is $20,000. This covers the driver of the car if they were in an accident and were not covered under an insurance policy.

In the event of a car accident and the driver of your car or the other car were not covered under their own insurance policy, the uninsured motorist coverage would protect not only yourself but the other drivers in the accident. The coverage will pay for any medical necessities that are incurred during the accident and any wages that are lost. The coverage will only pay up to the amount that you have on your insurance policy. Anything over this amount will be the responsibility of the driver. If the accident was the fault of the other driver, then their insurance will cover up to the amount listed on their policy and then your insurance will cover the remaining amount. An uninsured policy is different than an underinsured policy. An underinsured driver has insurance, but they may not have enough coverage to pay for the expenses if the driver were in an accident. An uninsured motorist has no insurance at all. The only way that an uninsured motorist can usually drive a vehicle is if there is a family member who has taken out the uninsured motorist coverage on their insurance. An uninsured policy is not expensive to get, but it would be best for the driver to obtain their own policy as soon as possible.

If you let someone drive my car and they are not on my policy what happens if there is an accident?

You may find yourself exposed to costly personal liability. If you don't have adequate insurance coverage you will be liable to pay for any damages or injury above the limits of your coverage. If the driver doesn't have a valid driver's license your insurance company will refuse to pay for any damage caused by the accident. If you don't have collision coverage you will lose your car and have expense to pay.In general it is not a good idea to allow someone else to drive your car unless it is absolutely necessary, they are legally allowed to drive and you have full insurance coverage.

Your question is not specific enough. If you are listed as a "Named Insured" and you are married, then both you and spouse are covered.
