How do you switch car insurance to a new car?

Since my wife does way more driving than me, she's giving me her old car. How do I go about switching her car onto my insurance?

If you two have different carriers, your wife will need to take the car off her own insurance plan, while you add the car to yours. You can do this by calling your insurance provider or doing it yourself through your online account.
During the process, your insurance provider can:
  • Give you an insurance quote for this car
  • Let you know if you will need additional coverage
  • Add this car to your policy
If you’re unsatisfied with the insurance quote that your provider offers you, you might want to shop around for a better rate using Jerry, the car insurance comparison super app. Jerry can sign you up for a new policy if you decide to make the switch and even help you cancel your old policy.
