Can I buy my dad a car but put the insurance policy under his name?

Answered by Car Insurance Expert Tessa on February 22, 2021

I'm 19 and I want to buy my dad a car since I have better credit than he does. But I want the car insurance policy to be under his name since his premium will be lower. Is this doable?

If your father is going to be the primary driver and registered owner of the vehicle, this is possible. Be sure that his name is on the title and you’re just the one who’s making payments on the car.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
