“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.”
