  • No, the insurance is on the car not the loan

  • With my insurance company you would. We have a car that my BIL is buying that we have been using and his brother has to be on ours because they are both on the loan. PS his brother doesnt have a license yet either.

  • Is the title in his name? Insurance is just that. If you were in an accident, is he "rightful owner" of the car? If there were no insurance they'd go after him in other ways. He may want it simply for a security, even if he paid that part of it.

  • Actually it depends on the state you are in, but they can tell you when you call the insurance company. In my state insurance follows the car, but in some states it follows the person.
