Unfortunately, it does not. Insurance companies don’t report to the credit bureau. You’ll have to employ other methods of building up your credit, such as opening the right credit card and making on-time payments on your other bills.

Should I pay for accidentally damaging my driving instructor's car?
I was operating my driving instructor's car when I accidentally drove over the curb and hit a light pole. The car suffered some minor damage and there were no injuries. My instructor said he doesn't have full-coverage insurance and he wants me to pay for repairs. Should I pay?

Can an insurance company pay repair costs to me directly so I can keep my vehicle?
My 2008 Chevy Trailblazer was damaged during a windstorm in Montana. It will most likely be totaled, as the cost of repairs is $6,000. I would like to keep my vehicle, as I still owe $1,000 on my loan. Would my insurance company pay me the $6,000 directly? And then I can sell the car myself.
