California operates under a "rated driver" pricing system in auto insurance. Basically, all drives must be "rate" to a particular vehicle. Here, their driving profile will be utilized to calculate the rate. However, you cannot exclude certain drivers to one vehicle. Because your children live in your house, insurance companies believe the likelihood of them using the vehicle is too high and thus they need to be a covered driver on the policy.
