So my dad was driving in the rain and car slips and hits a pole. He as full coverage. So will it go on his record when we report it? And will he be at fault?
Your policy requires that all incidents/accidents be reported as soon as possible. Dad paid for the coverage so why not use it? Would he leave his winnings behind at a roulette table in Las Vegas? As for fault I don't think the pole moved, so what's left? Oh god is at fault for the rain? No, dad blew it, he's at fault.

It does appear that your father was at fault. Likely driving too fast for the circumstances.

Unfortunately it is. The law requires toning it down in the rain so you don't hit a pole or other stationary objects. It will be on his record but make the insurance company tell you exactly how many points and its effect on rates.
