I’m not an insurance agent, but having a good friend in the business and a good bit of tickets to deal with, I think I might be able to help a little. If it is a non moving disturbance (such as not wearing a seat belt, or expired tags… something like that) then it doesn’t count against you. If you had 1 prayer for judgment (i think it’s one every five years) then that will not count against you either. If it’s a speeding ticket, two prayer for jodgements, or something you might have gotten arrested for, you might want to report it. In any case, the agent is able to pull up your driving records in their computer, so they will likely see the mistake and take the correct deeds to make your policy valid.

What happens if a car accident was not your fault but you were driving a friend’s car that was insured by liability insurance?
I believe if, before the accident, you are listed as a driver on the insurance policy, then you are permitted to drive the vehicle too. If so, then the car at fault is at fault. If you are not listed as a driver, then your friend could be at fault if he gave you permission to drive the car. If he did not give you permission to drive the car, then you could be held liable. Liability covers only the other car, unless you have uninsured motorist insurance included, then your car is also covered if the at fault driver has no insurance, if you are listed as a driver. If the car at fault has no insurance what-so-ever, then they could be at fault because they should not even be on the road if your state requires minimal liability insurance. You can call any insurance company to find out, and remain anonymous if you would like, and if they will tell you. Or you can call a lawyer who gives free consults to find out. I would suggest that you very first look up your state laws (regarding automotive insurance requirements for your state, if it has any). Then go from there. State laws may vary!

not if you are personally insured to drive that vehicle on your own policy
Can car insurance companies not repair your car if you left behind to add something on the insurance?
Auto covered only as manufactured .
Yes. The policy coveres the vehicle as it came off the assembly line. They have no way to know how much to charge you for “finish” coverage if you don’t tell them. Another thing to witness for is that auto polices are Actual Cash Value coverage. That means they pay how much something is worth at the time of loss. Even if you tell them you spent $4000 on rims and tires, they are not obligated to pay you $4000 when you get jacked. The moment you climb on them on your car, the value goes down. This is a bad loop slot in insurance.

Can you drive an insured car if you have no insurance?
Driving another persons insured CarIt is always best to ask the possessor loaning you the vehicle if you will be covered under his policy. If he is not sure then he should contact his Insurer and verify before you drive. It never hurts to have your own operators or non owners policy in place for extra security if your an occasional driver without a car right now. Each US state regulates it’s own insurance needs through it’s state legislature. Insurance for a loaner would depend on the type of Policy that the Vehicle possessor presently has in place as required in that state. It could also depend on the nature of the vehicle loaned or hired. If the Possessor has a Limited Liability or a Named Driver Policy then no other drivers may be covered even with permissive use. If the possessor has purchased a Broad Form Auto Insurance Policy then generally permitted drivers are covered. It is a common misnomer that Auto Liability goes after a vehicle. In Fact, Auto Liability Insurance covers and goes after the named insured(s) (usually the vehicle possessor) and the named insureds legal liability that may arise out vehicle ownership and operation. Most liability coverage will even go after the defined insured to a replacement vehicle, When on a standard form auto insurance policy, liability coverage is afforded even when tertiary or third party through an accident of a permitted driver. This point of concept of vicarious legal liability of a property possessor and the contracted liability of the Specific Policy Form suggested by an Insurance Company is where the misunderstanding arises. Limited lines Policies however economic can leave gaps in coverage so it’s best that all drivers even non owners carry financial responsibility. The Concept definitions of Legal Liability of the holder of a property and the Financial Responsibility of all vehicle operators on public roads is determined further in the US by the regulations of the individual state of registration. ReactionAccording to law if the possessor of the vehicle has insurance on the vehicle, and “loans” you the car, and you are listed as an occasional driver of that vehicle, then you are covered. Otherwise, you will have to purchase your own policy. Dependent DriversBe careful. The reaction to your question varies from state to state and you need tocheck the laws in your state. In the state where I live, an under 25 driver who lives with you must be insured on your policy to drive your car and it’s very expensive. Insurance coverage is different if someone who does not live with you uses the carfor your convenience . It can get very complicated. Insurance companies are doing more and more to mitigate rising costs of repairs, medical treatment and their liability.
