"Do I need a non owners policy if I am a listed driver on my fiancee's policy?" "
I just sold my car and moved in with my fiancee last week. She added me to her insurance, but I am not a "named insured" since we aren't married yet. Do I need to get a non owners policy to be covered to drive her car?

No, you do not need to get a non owners car insurance policy for additional coverage. Any driver listed on your fiancee’s car insurance policy is a covered driver.
Your fiancee is the named insured since she is the owner of the policy. This means she maintains control and is the only one who can cancel the policy. But you are both fully covered drivers.
Once you get married, the policy will be updated and you will both be named insureds. Plus, you might see a decrease in your premium since most carriers offer a lower rate to married drivers. “
