It could also depend on the nature of the vehicle loaned or hired. If the Possessor has a Limited Liability or a Named Driver Policy then no other drivers may be covered even with permissive use. If the proprietor has purchased a Broad Form Auto Insurance Policy then generally permitted drivers are covered. It is a common misnomer that Auto Liability goes after a vehicle.

Most liability coverage will even go after the defined insured to a replacement vehicle, When on a standard form auto insurance policy, liability coverage is afforded even when tertiary or third party through an accident of a permitted driver. This point of concept of vicarious legal liability of a property possessor and the contracted liability of the Specific Policy Form suggested by an Insurance Company is where the misunderstanding arises. Limited lines Policies tho’ economic can leave gaps in coverage so it’s best that all drivers even non owners carry financial responsibility. The Concept definitions of Legal Liability of the possessor of a property and the Financial Responsibility of all vehicle operators on public roads is determined further in the US by the regulations of the individual state of registration.

Can you drive an insured car without insurance?

Just because someone else has coverage for that vehicle does not automatically mean you are a covered driver. The insured should contact the insurance company or the insurance agent to determine the status of an unscheduled driver. Some auto insurance policies will cover the occasional driver while other policies will not. All drivers of a motor vehicle on public roads are required to carry proof of financial responsibility at all times.

Do you need car insurance on a car you do not drive?

No. Except if you want to think about the possibility of that carbeing stolen. If it is not on a home owners policy, then you shouldhave some sort of theft insurance on it. But if the car is notbeing driven on the road you do not need insurance on it. Clarification: A homeowners insurance policy will not cover your vehicle; you haveto have a separate auto policy for it. But if you have a car thatyou are not using and don’t plan to use, you can turn the licenseplates in to the DMV and then cancel the insurance on the car. Another take: actually, this depends on the state. I lived inOregon for many years, and according to state law, all Oregoniansare required to have car insurance on ALL CARS THEY OWN, even ifthe car is not used. Granted the majority of people who have carsthey never drive don’t bother to insure them (I wouldn’t), but if acar does not have insurance, even if not driven, it can be towed. Check your state laws on this. The response varies by state. ONE MORE THOUGHT: If the vehicle is financed, the contract yousigned with the bank or finance company very likely requires you tohave physical harm coverage on the vehicle as well. I agree withthe “Clarification” and “Another Take” in that laws vary from stateto state so check your state laws. Homeowners policies specificallyexclude coverage for any self-propelled vehicles other certaintypes such as lawn mowers. In most states you cannot have tagswithout proof of insurance. In Georgia one day with an active tagbut no insurance will get you a fine.

If your particular state requires it and the vehicle is registered,then you most likely need to insure it. If you are storing the car in a garage, you may want to insure itwith a individual property insurance plan. Those are pretty cheap andonly insure something to it’s utter value.

Home proprietor’s insurance may cover a vehicle ifit is garaged if the car is listed as an asset on the homeownerspolicy as a private property investment but that is a very grayarea.
