Will My Car Insurance Cover A Driver Not On My Policy?

One of the most common questions consumers have is whether their car insurance will cover a driver not on their policy. The answer, unfortunately, can vary from company to company. In this blog post, we will explore the ins and outs of car insurance and answer some of the most commonly asked questions about driver coverage. From what kind of vehicles are covered to when accidents occur off-policy, you’ll be able to understand everything you need to know in order to make an informed decision about your policy.

What Is Driver Not On Policy?

If you are the only driver on your policy, then your car insurance company will most likely consider you to be the driver. If there is another driver who has negligence or criminal involvement in an accident, your car insurance might not cover that person. Your policy might also exclude drivers who are known alcoholics or users of drugs.

How to Check If Your Car Insurance Will Cover A Driver Not On Your Policy

If you’re not the driver listed on your policy, you may be able to get coverage. To find out, contact your car insurance company. They’ll ask for your name, address and driver’s license number. They may also require a proof of insurance card from the driver who is not on your policy.[1]

If you can’t get car insurance because the driver isn’t on your policy, don’t worry. Most states have “uninsured motorist” laws that will allow you to sue for damages if someone hits you while driving without insurance. You can also call the police and report the accident.[2]

What To Do If Your Car Insurance Will Not Cover A Driver Not On Your Policy

If you have a driver not on your policy, there are a few things you can do to try and get coverage. The first thing to do is contact your insurance company and ask if they will amend your policy as long as the driver is licensed, insured, and in good standing with the state they reside in. If this doesn’t work, then you may need to consider getting a new car insurance policy that includes coverage for drivers not on your policy.


If you’re not on your car insurance policy, or if your policy doesn’t cover drivers who aren’t licensed and insured in your state, be sure to check with your provider before you go out driving. Many companies will only offer coverage for those who are registered and insured with them.
