Question

Can I insure my friend's car that I borrow?

I’m driving a 2017 Honda Civic that is leased in my friends name. He will need full coverage. Can I insure my friend's car even though he is the owner? How would that work? He has insurance already but it's in his name. How does this work?

As your friend already has a policy for the vehicle, you do not need to get another policy. You can have your friend add you to his policy as a covered driver. This is the easiest solution. For more information on getting an auto insurance quote or to see some car insurance rates, see here.
