Car Insurance Costs

Am I being overcharged for my policy?

Many companies require that if you are married and live with your spouse, you must list them on your policy as a driver, whether they drive your vehicle or not. Since your wife is not licensed, I would suggest shopping around for a policy with a company that does not require that spouses be listed.

Will an unreported car accident affect my premium?

If you were never cited for the accident and never filed a claim, there should be no insurance record of your accident. Insurance companies generally run two reports when you sign up for new insurance — your motor vehicle report (MVR) and another for claims history (CLUE). If they're clean, they should show no record of the accident and your rate should be unaffected.

My daughter totaled her car while she was covered under my insurance. How does this affect my rate?

If your daughter was the listed driver and the accident was logged correctly, most companies won't charge that against you. If you are looking to switch insurers and her accident comes up on your claims history, I would obtain proof or confirmation from that company that the claim wasn't yours so it can be cleared.
