General Insurance

A friend is purchasing a car for me tomorrow, I'm wondering if there is a temporary policy I can get through the dealership until I can shop for my own policy?

Temporary car insurance doesn't really exist. You will likely have to get a Texas auto insurance plan before they let you leave with the vehicle. I recommend shopping around for a policy before the car is purchased — the typical policy period is six months. Keep in mind your rates will likely be a bit higher since you haven't owned a car for a few years, which would be seen as a lapse.  If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

My son has moved out on bad terms. Should I still keep him on my insurance?

If your son's vehicle is registered in your name, I would keep it insured. Florida will suspend the license of the registered person if a vehicle isn't insured.

Is it possible for a family member to register and insure my car if I'm no longer driving?

That shouldn't be an issue, however she would need to insure the vehicle before she attempts to get tags. I believe you will first have to return your tags to the state and then she can start the process.
