How can I add an additional driver to my car insurance?

I am the only one on my car insurance policy right now. Am I able to add other drivers?

Answer
Even if you were the only driver listed on your car insurance, you can add other drivers.
Most car insurance companies don’t charge a fee for adding drivers, but your rate could change, depending on the other driver’s personal information. When you add an additional driver to your policy, car insurance companies look at their driving record, credit history, and age.
If they don’t have a clean driving record or haven’t been driving long, your rate could increase. Your rate may decrease if they have a better driving record than you and are more experienced.
To add another driver to your policy, you’ll need to reach out to your car insurance company. You may also be able to add them through your online account or mobile app. Most companies will update you with any rate changes before you approve the change to your policy.
When you’re adding another driver, shopping around is essential to get the best rate. Use the Jerry app to compare quotes in just minutes from over 50 insurance providers.
