“If you share a household with your parents and you’re a licensed driver, you may actually be required by your parents’ car insurance company to be listed on their policy if you drive their car regularly.
Though it’s expensive, it’s probably still less expensive to be on your parents’ policy than to purchase your own. If you want to shop around for cheap car insurance, you can use Jerry, a comparison tool, to help you find the best rates.”

Can you get liability insurance in Texas without a license?
"I want to know if it's possible to purchase insurance without having a valid driver's license from any state or country. I want to buy a car and make sure it's insured but not necessarily drive it."

Can my price change after purchasing an insurance policy online?
I was previously with a carrier through a broker. I had a lapse and decided to request a quote with the same company directly. When I put in my previous policy details online, it gave me a discount. However, when I called to follow up, the agent told me I did not qualify. Will my price change if I purchase it online instead?
