Can someone else insure my car

New York, NY |

The title to my car is in my name. But I'm trying to see if maybe my brother which lives in my household can insure it. Where both going to drive it but he wants to put in insurance in his name would I have to change the title over to his name since the car insurance will be in his name. I was just wondering because I really don't want to change the title

  1. Ask the DMV


  2. You might be able to add him to the title. At least that way, you would retain some formal ownership of the vehicle. You might also consult with a local insurance agent.

  3. This is possible in most states. Consult an attorney in NY to know for sure.
