You might need to provide some documents when adding a driver to your insurance policy. The specific requirements may vary based on your insurance company and the state you live in.  Documentation helps your car insurance company to determine factors like driving history, experience, and potential risk, which can affect your policy’s premium.

Here are some common documents that the insurance company can request:

  • Driver’s information: You will typically need to provide the driver’s full name, date of birth, and gender.
  • Driver’s license: The insurer might ask you to provide a copy of the driver’s license.
  • Social security number: Some insurance companies may require the driver’s social security number for identification purposes.
  • Driving history: Your insurer may request information about the driver’s driving history, including any accidents or traffic violations.
  • Vehicle information: You may need to provide details about the vehicle the driver will be using, such as the make, model, and VIN (Vehicle Identification Number).

Always check with your insurance company to understand their specific document requirements. Make sure to provide accurate and complete information to ensure a smooth process when adding a driver to your policy.
