Switching Auto Insurance CompaniesYes, Of Course you can. Just call the insurance company of your choice and ask for a quote. It is enormously common for people to shop fresh rates upon expiration of the old insurance policy. Many people overpay for their insurance simply due to not shopping around at renewal time. In Fact, it is the most common time and is even recommended by most agents as the ideal time to shop around for a fresh rate is upon the expiration of the previous policy. Most Insurance companies are fully aware that renewal time is the best time to pick up fresh insurance customers and may suggest you a discount of Five to Ten percent to transfer your business to their company. Blessed Motoring and shop that Rate to save some money. Fresh auto insuranceThere might be an internal “30-day rule” within certain companies, but you can get insurance with a fresh company. You may have to do a bit of footwork, and it might not be with a standard carrier, but it is possible. A carrier with this “rule” is most likely just wanting to verify what kind of customer you’d be, particularly in the area of premium payments (are you always on time? regularly late?). Insurance companies are, after all, businesses … they want to know you’ll be a good client. Do some shopping around, however, and you’ll find coverage. Once you’ve established coverage, however, reminisce to go back and do some more shopping, especially for better rates.

Only if the parent or guardian signs along with that 17 year old .

Yes, you will need to begin making phone calls to local insurance companies but there shouldn’t be any reason that you couldn’t. Now price may be another issue. .

Is it legal for your auto insurance to add your 19yr old to your policy as a secondary driver knowing he possesses his own car and has his own insurance?
from A Texas General AgentYes, They can do that, but only if you fail to proclaim him as driver or exclude him from coverage. You can still avoid having him on your policy by excluding him from your policy after the fact. Just finish a form 515A to exclude him from coverage. After filing the 515A with your insurer they are no longer permitted to place him on your policy nor charge you for it. They will also not be responsible if he subsequently has an accident in your vehicle. Since he already has his own insurance and the liability portion of an auto policy will go after the driver to a loaned vehicle, this should not be a problem, so long as he keeps up his payments on his own policy. Many Insurers and Insurance Agents will not voluntarily disclose this information to you however. This is because Insurance agents work on commission, the larger your insurance bill, the more they make, any percentage of Two dollars is more than the same percentage for 1 dollar . Fairly naturally having a Nineteen year old fresh driver on your policy will send your payments sky high. So they will always advise you to leave him on your policy and attempt to coax you it is for your own protection. Most youthful masculine drivers will eventually suffer a loss of some type whether it be major or minor. Should they be driving on your insurance policy when this happens, Your premiums will increase accordingly for the next three to five years. again the more you pay the more they make. If your insurer rejects to provide you with the necessary exclusion form, You should report them to your State Insurance Department as this would be considered an unethical practice and a means of gouging the public. I would also advise you to find another Insurance Company if you determine unethical practices on the part of your insurer. I always advise my customers to place freshly licensed youthful drivers on a separate policy of their own. This is to protect you, the Parent from unacceptable rate increases on your policy. Yes, an insurance company will always want all the family members living in the same house on the policy, because it is their belief that eventually, there will come a time, when the son or daughter has to use the car just for one errand, and if they get into an accident, the company is going to instantly deny the claim. So, this is not only for the insurance company’s protection, but yours as well since you would be stuck with the bills after they deny the claim.

You can’t unless they tell you who they are insured with. Who a person is insured with or even if they have insurance is a private matter inbetween the insured and the insurance company.

This is why it is crucial to always call the police to the scene of the accident no matter how much the other person begs to give them a break. Always, always!!! call the police to the scene of an accident. The exception is if the accident is on private property.

Can an 18-year-old get auto insurance without wielding the car?
This question is a little confusing. You specifically state “the” car, so there must be a specific car that you drive on a fairly regular basis??? Otherwise, I will reaction as however you don’t own any car, and you don’t have a specific car that is available for your regular use. A Bond is one method of being ‘insured’ while you drive “A” vehicle. They are available from numerous carriers. Not all carriers provide this; it is reserved for high risk drivers and some carriers provide no products at all for ‘non standard’ drivers. It doesn’t insure you in any particularly car; rather, it goes after the bondholder. Another product, available in SOME states and only by SOME carriers, is a “Non Possessed Auto Insurance Policy”. It will provide an actual policy with policy language much like a regular auto policy, except that it will act much like the bond mentioned above. It covers the driver and not a specific automobile.
