Do I need a non owners car insurance policy if I'm listed as a driver on a liability policy of my dad's car?
I'm listed as a driver on my dad's car insurance policy, and I'm the only person who uses the car. However, I wanted to remove the burden of the insurance policy by getting my own non owners car insurance policy. Can I do this?

“No, you can’t have only a non owners car insurance policy on a vehicle if it’s available for regular use.
You’ll need to keep at least state-minimum liability coverage on the car, which you should already have as a driver on your father’s policy.
If it’s a financial burden for him to maintain the policy (or just a nuisance), you can find out if you qualify for any discounts with you and your dad’s current carrier. Alternatively, you two can shop around for quotes and switch over to a cheaper policy.
If you want to save money on car insurance, the Jerry app is a good place to start. A licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand insurance companies and buying new car insurance. “

"My wife and I were reviewing our current car insurance policy and found that she is listed as a driver, but not as a second named insured. Does this mean that she is not insured, even though she is listed as a driver? "
