If I live with my grandparents, can I drive their cars legally?

"My grandparents don't want me to drive their cars because I'm not on their insurance. Can I still take them out legally? I'm 16 and we share a household."

“If you live in the same household as your grandparents and you have a driver’s license, most car insurance companies will actually require that you’re on the policy.
This is because if you share a household, companies assume you’ll be driving their cars (or at least have access to them) and therefore increase the risk of an accident. If you or your grandparents are worried about cost, you can find cheap car insurance by using Jerry and comparing quotes online.”
