Can an Uninsured Driver Drive an Insured Car?

According to Esurance, insurance coverage follows the vehicle, not the driver. If the owner of a vehicle allows a person to drive a car whom is not listed as a driver on the insurance policy, the vehicle owner risks liability in the event an accident occurs.

According to Esurance, an uninsured driver should not be allowed to drive the vehicle. If an accident occurs, the vehicle owner can be sued for damages in case of an accident.

If a car is often borrowed by an uninsured driver, the driver needs to be added to the vehicle policy to maximize protection. Also, the vehicle owner must verify terms and conditions as it relates to drivers with the insurance company. Vehicle registration and insurance verification must be stored in the vehicle at all times, Esurance advises.
