How old does a child have to be to gift a vehicle to them?

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.

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.

Coverage & Claims

If I'm uninsured and the person at-fault for the accident is insured, how do I get my car fixed?

Nothing would change in the way the claim should be handled, as far as damages are concerned. Any trouble he is in for not having insurance would be a separate issue.

Should I still keep my 18-year-old son on my insurance if he moved out?

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

My son is 19 and is in the service and will be overseas the next month. Is this covered by the definition of exclusion?

As long as you can provide proof of a separate address, you should be able to remove your son from your policy completely. Every company is different so you will need to check with your specific company.

General Insurance

Do I have to add my adult son to my insurance if he'll be driving my car while visiting?

Since your son lives in his own home at college, you will not have to add them to your policy if they drive your car less than ten times per year, with most companies. Some insurance companies offer a discount if you add a college student who lives away from home and has limited access to the insured car and seldom drives it. Every company is different so I would check with your company for their specific rules.

Eligibility

Is my 18-year-old son covered on my car insurance if he still lives with me?

If your son is living in your home, he needs to be listed on the policy as either a driver or an excluded driver. An excluded driver means they are not covered to drive the car at all.

Eligibility

Is there any auto insurance that better suits drivers with an international driver license?

I wish insurance were that easy. There are many different factors that go into calculating your rate.

Coverage & Claims

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.

Can my insurance company make me carry insurance on my 20yr son living w/me?

Yes, everyone that lives in your household that is of legal driving age needs to be listed on the policy. The reason is they have access to the car.
