Can I add my fiancée as an additional driver on my New Mexico policy if they don't have their driver's license?
I am licensed and will be the primary driver. My fiancée does not have her license currently, as she is from another country. Is there any carrier in New Mexico that will allow me to add her as an additional driver?

“It can be extremely difficult to get insurance without a driver’s license. Since it is illegal to operate a vehicle without a valid driver’s license, carriers will not accept an unlicensed driver as an additional driver.
You would only be able to add your fiancée as a household member since you live together. However, she would be excluded from coverage on the policy.
If your fiancée was licensed in her home country, there are carriers who will accept international licenses. Progressive is one carrier that will allow you to add a driver with an international license to your policy.
Reach out to other carriers in your area to see who accepts international licenses. Comparison shopping will ensure you’re receiving the best rate for the coverage you need. “
