are there any clever people out there who can tell me if I can be removed from the insurance by nasty parents trying to punish me, if the insurance policy is in my name? thought i should find out before having any major arguments with them, because i know that if they can that will be what they threaten me with!
hmmm, they do pay for it, but the car has been signed over to me, so i thought that they could only remove me if i signed to agree to that.
As far as i am aware the policy holder can add and remove named drivers
If the policy is in your name only, then only you can cancel it. However, if there is some sort of credit agreement etc and they are paying it monthly from their bank account etc. then if they cease the payments the policy will lapse due to non-payment.
I am the policy holder, i'm sure of that. my dad is a named driver though so if they stop paying then he'll be uninsured too, so they won't do that one. and as far as i know they payed it all at once, so its insured until the beginning of next year.
if your dad is only a named driver then he can't cancel your policy.
Exactly. Like I said so long as the policy is solely in your name and he is just a named driver rather than joint policy holder, they insurance company can only take orders from you and you alone.
