auto insuranceAdding a New Driver to your Insurance Policy

Is your teenager about to get his driver’s license, and your needing to get him auto insurance? Every insurance company is different but it is possible to add a driver to your policy.

There are three main reasons why you may need to add someone to your policy.

  • Your son/daughter is beginning to drive. When you add your son/daughter to your policy you should have your child’s personal information handy. This includes his/her birth date and driver’s license number.
  • A driver will be operating your car for a short period of time. When someone is visiting from out of town, or you need someone to drive you around for some time you should add them to your policy.
  • Your car will be operated by someone other than you on an everyday basis. If a driver will be driving your vehicle for a daily driver they should be on your insurance policy. The driver’s history must be obtained and a release paper has to be signed.

When adding someone to your auto insurance policy you should have their personal information ready for the insurance company. When adding a driver to your policy the agency is going to take in to consideration the age of the driver you are adding, their driving history, and the risk the driver poses while on the road.
