Can I legally drive my girlfriend's car during my driving test?
I'm planning to take my driving test at the DMV soon. I want to use my girlfriend's car, which is covered by her mom's insurance policy. Can I legally drive this car during my test?
There are two main things to consider if you plan on borrowing a car for your driving test: insurance and permission.
Insurance follows the car; as long as the vehicle has insurance and you have proof of that insurance, you will most likely be covered in the event of an accident. Make sure you have the insurance ID card with you for the road test.
Also, you need to have permission to use the vehicle from the named insured. If, at the time of loss, it’s discovered that the vehicle was taken without the owner’s knowledge and without permissive use, an accident won’t be covered.

How do my husband and I get my rental and deductible expenses from an uninsured driver?
"My husband was hit by an uninsured driver who was backing out of a driveway. Our policy has collision coverage that will pay for the damage, less the deductible. We do not have uninsured motorist or rental reimbursement coverage. How do we recoup the deductible and rental car expenses?"
