Question

Can you insure a leased vehicle out of state?

My daughter lives at college year-round. I leased a car for her to keep. She is out of state and I would like her to be able to insure the car in her state of residence. Is that possible with a lease?

It could be tough for your daughter to insure the leased vehicle if insurance companies see that she is not the owner. In addition, your lease agreement likely states that you have to be insured on the vehicle, and they may not be okay with your daughter being both the primary driver and out of state. I think your best option would be to keep everything in your name.
