Car insurance if the vehicle you're driving isn't in your name?
I pretty regularly drive a car that I didn't buy — all the paperwork and stuff is in someone else's name. How do I make sure I have insurance?
If you are looking to insure a vehicle that is not in your name, you can add the owner of the vehicle to your insurance policy as an additional interest. When you do this, you’re just demonstrating that there is another party with insurable interest. This should not raise your premiums at all.
