How do you add someone in a car insurance policy?

My 16-year-old daughter just got her driver's license! In addition to being proud of her, I want to add her to my insurance policy so that she's covered for any eventuality. How can I do that?

Congratulations to your daughter—a driver’s license is a big accomplishment! To add someone to your policy, the first thing you have to do is get in touch with your provider.
Usually, they’ll ask for information about the new driver. Here’s the info you should have on hand when you add your daughter:
  • Full name
  • Date of birth
  • Gender
  • Social Security Number
  • Occupation (you would most likely put student)
  • How long they’ve had their license
  • Any recent traffic tickets or accidents
If your car insurance costs increase significantly, you might want to shop around for a new policy using Jerry. We’ll get you free quotes from up to 50 top providers and take care of all the phone calls and paperwork when you switch.
