    I've recently passed my driving test and I intend to use my parent's car. How do I add my name to their car insurance?

    Well firstly congratz for passing. Now since it's your parents car, you would need their permission to use it. Also since the insurance policy would be in one of their names, that parent would need to call up their car insurance company and request you to be added as a named driver if they find the price acceptable.

    Its a simple as ringing them up and asking you to be added. They will give you a price, and you can decide.

    Of course you will need the permission of the policy holder.

    Your parents would have to phone up their insurance company to add you as a named driver. The insurance company will then give them the price that they will have to pay, they pay it and then its sorted.

    Thanks.

    But is ringing the insurance company the only way? Can you also do it online? My parents don't speak English that well.

    Usually yes, it's the way most insurers do things. If the insurers does have a facility for making changes online then your parents will have probably been given details when the started their policy. Have a look through the paperwork.
