From now to May 2017. He will go to college in Fall but won't take vehicle.I'm primary driver and it's fully insured.
Family Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

Ok, then normally if it was a short term loan, you wouldn't need to do anything because he would automatically be covered under your insurance since you were loaning him the vehicle. This is considered a "license" and means that anyone you authorize to drive the vehicle would be covered.

.

But with this long a loan, it would probably be best to just add him as an authorized driver just to cover yourself if your insurer tried to claim you actually gifted him the car and were trying to get around adding him to the policy.

.

So you would need to contact your agent to see what you needed to do to add him as a formally covered driver.

Many thanks
Family Lawyer: Barrister, Lawyer replied 2 years ago

You are very welcome. Glad to help any time. And it is better to be safe than sorry because insurance companies like to try to deny coverage for any reason that they can come up with in the event of a loss so best to take away one potential reason...

.

If you feel your original question and any related follow ups have been answered, I would very much appreciate a positive rating on the answer I have provided so I receive credit for my work. If you have a new question the JustAnswer folks require that you start a new question page, but you can request me by putting "For Barrister" in the caption and they will get it to me.

thanks much
