How can I help my friend become an insured driver on my spare car?
I want to let my friend drive my extra car, but my insurance carrier won't add her due to her driving record. Should she get a non owners policy?

“Non owners car insurance is designed for drivers who don’t regularly operate a vehicle. If she will be using your car on a regular basis, this won’t be the most suitable option for her.
If you are in a situation to gift the car to your friend, this will be your best option. Then she can get the car registered and insured under her own name. Even with a less-than-perfect driving record, building up her insurance history will help decrease her rate over time.
Using the Jerry app is a another good way for her to save money. As a licensed broker, Jerry does all the hard work of finding the cheapest quotes from the top name-brand companies and buying insurance.”
