Hi there. Thanks for your question, I will help you with this.This would depend upon the specific wording in the policy. However, typically, the policy will require the main policyholder to be alive in order for those named parties to be able to take cover under the terms of the policy.It is possible to ensure the car in your son-in-law's name, even if you own the car. If you think about it, this happens all the time when you buy a car on hire purchase, as the true owner of the vehicle is the hire purchase company, and not the individual making the payments, at least until the final payment is made.I hope this answers your question. If so, please do rate the speed and quality of service by leaving me a rating. It only takes 1 second to do… If you would like more information, then please let me know and I shall do my best to help out! Thank you!Dan
