How do I switch my car insurance to another person?
I decided to give my son my Jeep for his birthday—he’s been working hard at school and at work, and he deserves it! I’m just not sure what to do about the insurance, since it’s under my name. How do I switch the insurance so it is under his name instead?
- Get the vehicle registration transferred to your son. If you do not sign the title over, the new owner cannot get their new vehicle insured.
- Inform the insurance company of the transfer. Your policy will no longer be valid and will be canceled. That way, your son can get a new policy for the vehicle!
