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

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.
