Coverage & Claims

My son got a DUI, I will be selling the vehicle & removing him from my Geico policy. Do I need to report it to Geico?

If you choose to repair the damage to your son's car using your insurance, you will need to file a claim and tell your insurer what happened. The claim will impact your rates, but removing your son will not impact your rates as much as leaving him on there — because he has a DUI on his record, that would increase rates in addition to the accident. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.
