Can I insure my 19-year-old daughter's car for her since she has a poor driving history?
My daughter has one accident (not her fault) and two speeding tickets already, and she's not even 20 yet. Her quotes are way too expensive. Can I get car insurance for her in my own name so we can pay less?
“You can get car insurance for your daughter in your own name, but there are certain requirements that have to be met. She has to live with you, her car has to be garaged at your residence, and she has to be added to the policy as a driver.
If, however, your daughter doesn’t live with you, then you’re out of luck. She’ll have to get her own insurance and pay a higher price for coverage.

Will my insurance cover me if a drunk driver hit my parked car?
