Can I insure my son’s car and have him as a named driver?
The car must belong to one of your parents and they must be the main driver for the insurance policy to legally be in their name. If you own the car and you are the main driver, you’re breaking the law if the policy is not in your own name – this is called called “fronting”.
How do I insure someone else’s car?
