Where can I get car insurance if I don't have a license but am attending driving school?
I'm in the process of getting a driver's license and finishing up driving school. My mom won't let me use her car to drive; she says she'll teach me once I have enough money to buy my own car. Can I get car insurance if I'm not licensed?

“If you have a learner’s permit and you’re attending driving school, you may be able to find car insurance. But there are some caveats here.
First, you’ll usually need to get your license within a short period of time—typically 30 to 45 days—to start a policy with most carriers. Second, your carrier might require you to start the policy with a driver who has a valid license, which might be your mom in this case.
Also, if you’re under 18, most carriers will require you to have a parent or guardian sign on the insurance policy with you. “

Do I need my own insurance policy if I am listed as a driver on my brother's policy?
My brother and I live together. I totaled my last car and didn't see the point in getting another one. He added me as a driver to his policy, but do I need to have my own policy to be fully covered?
