Auto Insurance for Son with Learner's Permit?

My son just got his learner'-s permit. Under WV law, do I have to put him on my insurance?Thanks

In most states, children on learner's permits are covered under your insurance. You do not need to put him on your insurance until he has a license and is driving alone.But I can't guarantee that that is true for WV, so check.

If you let him drive your car he will need to be added to your policy. Yes....your insurance will go up. Sorry.

Honestly I don't know WV law, but the above answer isn't necessarily correct. I could drive with a permit in my parent's car without extra charge but the main thing is the plan. Make sure you check with your insurance and don't let them talk you into something. Just find out if you can give permission for a family member to drive the car and that you would be covered.Calling the local DMV couldn't hurt either could it?

Well, the biggest nonstandard auto carrier, would be each state's auto insurance program of last resort - that would be facility auto, assigned risk, it goes by lots of different names. If you exclude those, I can think of maybe a dozen companies off the top of my head.But I'm probably missing...
