Adding A New Driver To Your Car Insurance

Adding a new driver to your car insurance policy can be a great way to save money on your premiums. But there are a few things to know before you add a driver to your policy. Here, we’ll walk you through things you need to know about adding a driver to your policy, including when you can do so and how it works.

Which New Driver Can I Add To My Car Insurance Policy?

Anyone who lives in your household and regularly drives your car can be listed on your insurance policy. This includes spouses, children, and even roommates. In addition, any other drivers who regularly use your vehicle should also be listed, even if they don’t live with you. For instance, if you allow your neighbor to borrow your car regularly, you can list them on your policy. Also, drivers who have had their own insurance coverage canceled or who have been denied coverage by another insurer can be listed on your policy.

How To Add A New Driver To My Car Insurance Policy

Adding a new driver to your car insurance policy is a relatively simple process. Most insurers will require you to provide basic information about the driver’s name, date of birth, license number, and many more. You’ll also need to indicate whether the new driver is your family member or not. You may be asked to provide additional information, like their driving history. Once you have all the information, you can add the new driver. 


Keep in mind that adding a new driver is affordable. Younger and less experienced drivers will be more expensive to insure than older and more experienced drivers. So if you’re looking to save money, it’s best to add a professional driver with a clean driving record to your policy.
