Adding non-US resident to auto insurance.

Hi guys,

My British mother is coming to stay with us in July for 6 weeks, we live in Florida.

We want her to have some independence and mobility so she can take her grandchildren out and about, (I'm over the moon about this :D )

Anybody had any experience with Geico and what's needed to add a foreign visitor to an auto policy?

You dont need to worry about adding if your policy allows you to give her keys. Look at your current policy. i can allow anyone with a valid driver's license to drive my vehicle, and they are covered. She will need an international drivers license. Also, you will have to check with your state to how long they allow someone to drive with international drivers licens.

My insurance will not add my wife until she has a valid DL. She currently has a learner's permit and is covered under the "if I give them permission to drive the car clause". Car insurance is typically about the object being insured and not about the person. I would check to make certain that the car is covered if she drives it using her international DL as this probably varies from insurance company to insurance company.

Not sure if this applies to every state, but basically the car is insured, not the driver. So if you give permission to somebody to drive your car, it is insured. If they were going to drive it permanently, then they would be added to the policy as a regular driver. Call Geico and ask if that's how it is for your policy.

Best bet is to call Geico, different companies may have different policies. I have MET and when I wanted to add my wife(then girlfriend) to my policy, all they required was her Canadian drivers license number. They did ask for a copy of her Canadian drving record, which we got within a month, but it wasn't needed to add her to the policy.
