Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I am a licensed attorney who will try my very best to help with your situation or get you to someone who can. There may be a slight delay in my responses as I research statutes or ordinances and type out an answer or reply, but rest assured, I am working on your question.
Is this a short or long term loan?
Is the vehicle currently insured?
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.
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...
