"It okay for my aunt to borrow my car while hers is in the shop? "

My aunt has to get some work done on her car and it will be in the shop for a couple of weeks. I have a spare car to loan her, but since she isn't listed on my policy, is it okay to let her drive the car?

Car insurance follows the vehicle, not the driver. Since you have the spare car insured and are giving her permission to drive, she would be considered a covered driver.
Most carriers are okay with you letting other drivers operate your car if it is on an occasional basis. If you find that your aunt needs to drive the car for an extended period of time, you would want to add her to your policy. “
