General Insurance

How do I insure a car that I'm driving but the title and financing isn't in my name?

Since the car is kept at your home, you would need to insure the car in your name and address. You will also need to list your mother as a driver on the policy since she is the owner, and as an additional interest on the policy since she has a financial claim to the car.
