Can my 16-year-old daughter have a non-owners policy and drive my car?

In short, a non-owners policy is for someone who doesn't drive a vehicle on a normal basis, doesn't own a vehicle, and doesn't have access to one. So if your daughter only rents cars, then non-owners insurance may be a better fit.

My 23-year-old daughter owns her vehicle and has insurance on it. Should I keep her listed as one of our household drivers?

It depends on a few factors. If she lives in your household, the insurance company may require she be listed on your plan as a driver.

Eligibility

My step-daughter moved to Tennessee three months ago and is still on her mother's Florida auto policy. Is this legal?

You are correct to be concerned. Car insurance will not transfer from state to state.

Coverage & Claims

My 4-year-old daughter was in a car accident awhile back with a friend who has car insurance, am I able to still file a claim through her insurance?

You should still be able to open up a claim for any injuries or medical visits resulting from an accident. Specifically, in Tennessee, you have three years to make property damage claims and one year for injury claims.

Should I take my 23 yr old daughter off of my insurance? She recently was involved in an accident and has a DUI pending.

Yes, it would be a good idea to remove your daughter from your insurance policy due to her recent DUI and suspended license — both of which would impact your insurance by way of a much higher premium. Find out just how much a DUI can impact your rates here. Even with the citation and suspended license, she'll be able to find her own insurance — though that may be difficult.

Why did my insurance company automatically add my daughter to my policy when she has her own insurance?

If your daughter lives with you and you two share an address, your insurance company is probably assuming that she may sometimes drive your vehicle, at which point she would need to be a named driver on your policy. If she has her own car — and doesn't drive yours — it could be possible for you to have her excluded from your policy.

How can I get my daughter removed from my insurance?

Thanks for your question. Since she is receiving her mail at your address, that is considered her residence.

Coverage & Claims

Is a hydroplaning accident my daughter's fault?

Unfortunately, insurance companies list almost all single-vehicle accidents as at-fault on your claims history. This would be considered an at-fault collision accident. There is no other party at fault and this can be seen as a failure to maintain control of the vehicle.

When do I need to add my child with a learners permit to car insurance

You should add your daughter and the new car to your policy if she'll eventually be driving it once she gets her license. This will prevent the insurance company from having any reason to deny a claim in the event of an accident.

General Insurance

Will a non-owners policy be cheaper and right for my daughter?

A non-owners policy is cheaper than a standard policy. To qualify for a non-owners, your daughter cannot own a car or have regular access to a specific car.

Eligibility

Can my husband be liable for his ex-wife's uninsured vehicle?

In this situation, yes - your husband and his ex can be held liable for the damage. It's important to note that liability insurance follows the driver, not the car.
