Can my son borrow my vehicle to use on the weekends

This can be tricky. Since he doesn't live in your residence full-time, he no longer needs to be listed on the policy.

Am I responsible for paying for another driver's rental car

Yes. You are the reason the other driver does not currently have a vehicle which they most likely need to get to work and maintain their obligations.

Getting a new insurance quote affect current rate and credit score

Your current insurance company will definitely not be contacted. The only time your company would be contacted is when you call to cancel your policy.

Where can I store my vehicle is I don't have a driveway

New York is very strict with their registration process so this can be a tricky situation. The best idea I have is find a friend that has a garage or place to store it.

Coverage & Claims

My agent didn't add the correct insurance coverage

Sorry to hear about your situation. Most agents have binding authority with their carriers and if an agent marked anything that states you have full coverage I would obtain it.

Hit by uninsured driver, will my insurance pay me?

In New York, you're required to have uninsured motorist coverage, so you would be filing a claim under that coverage for your medical expenses. However, there isn't a legal requirement for the uninsured motorist property damage coverage - which you would use to file a claim for the damage to your vehicle.

I can't register my car without insurance but it's not in my name

The only reason the insurance wants to know about registration is for claims purposes and to make sure there are no other undisclosed drivers. I'd tell the insurance that you plan on transferring it right away.

General Insurance

Should I add my girlfriend to my car insurance policy?

If the only reason you would be adding your girlfriend to your policy is to save money, I wouldn't recommend it. At the end of the day, your insurance company would be insuring an additional person and vehicle so regardless of the multi-person or multi-vehicle discount you would receive, it probably wouldn't offset the additional insurable interests.

Do I need a license plate in NY

In New York you are required to have it plated no matter what. I would contact the DMV and see if they offer a temporary tag if you just need to get it moved.
