How do I add a car to Mercury insurance?

I am getting a second car for my son as a birthday gift. I want to add this used car to my policy. How can I do this?

Happy birthday to your son! I’m sure he’s going to be delighted. You can add a car and new driver online or over the phone.
Whether you add the new-to-you car online or over the phone, you will need:
  • The year, make, and model of the car
  • The license plate number
  • State where you both live
  • The Vehicle Identification Number or VIN
If your son isn’t already listed as a driver, you’ll need to add him as well by giving them his date of birth, confirm he lives with you (or re-enter your address), and provide his driver’s license number.
Adding young drivers can make your car insurance go up. If it becomes more expensive than you expected, then it’s an excellent time to shop around. You can do this easily with the Jerry app. Jerry compares personalized rates from the top providers, including Nationwide, Allstate, and Travelers, and delivers the best deals to your phone in minutes for free. The average Jerry user saves $879 a year on car insurance.
