Can my mom put me on her car insurance if she lives in Ohio and I live in Kentucky?
I'm 19 and just got my first car. My mom wants to put me on her car insurance policy. The problem is that she lives in Ohio and I'm a resident of Kentucky. Is this legal or will it cause problems?
“First off, your mother can’t put you on her car insurance policy unless she’s on the car title. If her name isn’t on the title, you’re the one that has to insure the vehicle.
Next, when you say you’re a resident of Kentucky, do you live there now, or are you just going to college there and usually live with your mom otherwise? If your situation is the latter and her name is on the title, she can certainly add you to her car insurance without any issues.
If you bought the car, chances are you’re the only one who’s on the title. Since it’s your first car, make sure to shop around to get the best rates possible.
If your mom is offering to buy your insurance, she’ll just have to give you the money each month to pay. It’s not a big deal; just another step in the process.

Can I make a claim with my own insurance if the other driver is underinsured?
I wasn't at fault in an accident and the other driver only has $25,000 in liability coverage. My medical bills and the damage to my vehicle have exceeded this limit. I do have uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. Am I able to submit a claim to my own insurance?

Can my brother and I get in trouble for lying to our car insurance company?
"I rear-ended someone, but the other driver didn't want to call the police. We didn't exchange numbers or information. Days later, my brother wants to file a claim, saying that the damage to our car happened while it was parked. How much trouble could we face for this?"
