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.

They might not have insurance or don't want you to file a claim on their insurance. Any claim you make would impact their premium.

How do I choose a car insurance deductible?

When it comes to selecting your deductible you have to know what you can afford, and if you could cover the claim or damages with a high deductible. If so, high deductible + good driving = a lot of savings but a lot of people can't fork over 1k-2k in the event of an accident.

Can I purchase additional coverage for the same car through a different insurance company?

No, you would need to get a new policy since every policy needs to have the state minimum liability for Illinois and then you would be able to add comprehensive and collision coverage. Keep in mind, because of the age of the vehicle, there are some companies that will not add comprehensive and collision coverage.

Will my son's accident on my policy affect my rates?

It will impact both of your rates. He will show an accident on his driving record.

Am I obligated to continue insurance payment even the car is totaled?

No — you do not need to keep paying for insurance on a car that is totaled. As long as you were insured at the time of the accident, you should be fine.

Coverage & Claims

Do I pay a deductible for a liability claim?

You are not responsible for a deductible unless you have comprehensive and collision coverage. Since you only have liability, the damages to your car will not be covered which means there is no deductible.
