How do I add a name to my car insurance?

After thirty years of marriage, my wife FINALLY got her license. I want to add her to our insurance plan so she can help drive on our upcoming road trip. How do I add a name to my car insurance?

That’s so exciting! You can add a new driver to your car insurance policy by calling your insurance provider or making the change on your online account.
Here is some of the information about your wife that you may need to provide:
  • Name
