If you buy a fresh car on a weekend is your fresh car insured if you have insurance on the old one?
Replacement or Extra VehicleGenerally, if the vehicle substitutes another vehicle already insured, it will have the same coverage as the one being substituted. However, for comp or collision to proceed, you must notify the carrier/insurer within 30 days of acquiring the vehicle. If it is an Extra vehicle (not substituting one already shown on the declarations page), you will automatically receive the broadest coverage presently on the policy for any vehicle listed in the declarations page. NOTE that that means if you have insured only vehicles that are older, with no outstanding loans, and you carry only Liability coverages for that vehicle, that is the only coverage this newer vehicle will have. The evident problem with that is if you are in an accident and the fresh vehicle is bruised before you can contact your insurance company, there will be NO COVERAGE for the damages TO THIS Fresh VEHICLE. MOST auto policies provide coverage for a ‘fresh’ (extra) or ‘replacement’ auto, when you already have the same coverage for the prior car. For example: Let’s say I own a 2003 Honda. I purchase a 2006 Toyota on a Saturday afternoon, or for that matter, on a Wednesday morning. If I trade it in, the ‘fresh’ car will automatically have the same coverage as the vehicle I traded in, for up to 30 days.

Can you drive an insured car if you have no insurance?
Driving another persons insured CarIt is always best to ask the proprietor loaning you the vehicle if you will be covered under his policy. If he is not sure then he should contact his Insurer and verify before you drive. It never hurts to have your own operators or non owners policy in place for extra security if your an occasional driver without a car right now. Each US state regulates it’s own insurance needs through it’s state legislature. Insurance for a loaner would depend on the type of Policy that the Vehicle holder presently has in place as required in that state. It could also depend on the nature of the vehicle loaned or hired. If the Possessor has a Limited Liability or a Named Driver Policy then no other drivers may be covered even with permissive use. If the proprietor has purchased a Broad Form Auto Insurance Policy then generally permitted drivers are covered. It is a common misnomer that Auto Liability goes after a vehicle. In Fact, Auto Liability Insurance covers and goes after the named insured(s) (usually the vehicle holder) and the named insureds legal liability that may arise out vehicle ownership and operation. Most liability coverage will even go after the defined insured to a replacement vehicle, When on a standard form auto insurance policy, liability coverage is afforded even when tertiary or third party through an accident of a permitted driver. This point of concept of vicarious legal liability of a property possessor and the contracted liability of the Specific Policy Form suggested by an Insurance Company is where the misunderstanding arises. Limited lines Policies however economic can leave gaps in coverage so it’s best that all drivers even non owners carry financial responsibility. The Concept definitions of Legal Liability of the proprietor of a property and the Financial Responsibility of all vehicle operators on public roads is determined further in the US by the regulations of the individual state of registration. ReactionAccording to law if the proprietor of the vehicle has insurance on the vehicle, and “loans” you the car, and you are listed as an occasional driver of that vehicle, then you are covered. Otherwise, you will have to purchase your own policy. Dependent DriversBe careful. The response to your question varies from state to state and you need tocheck the laws in your state.

If you are already insured with one car insurance can you be insured with another insurance with out it affecting your very first insurance?
This question is not specific enough, but from my interpretation, the person posing this question is asking if numerous policies can be taken out on the same vehicle at the same time. In Ontario, this would NOT be permitted as this would void all policies that have the described vehicle listed. Insurance is to indemnify the insured (who has insurable interest in the vehicle) and not permit for profit of the insured. Indemnification means to put the insured(s) and any harmless third parties in a position (financially and health wise, if possible) back to moments before the loss. If Two or more policies exist on a vehicle, and the possessor/operator is involved in an accident, then neither policy would react, since the insured has attempted to profit from his/her misfortune. Even if the claim was legit (which would be questionable since there are more than one policy) as a prudent measure all companies insuring the vehicle involved would deny the claim based on misrepresentation. On the application of insurance for automobile (OAF 1) would ask the applicant if he/she has already an existing policy for the vehicle described. If the reaction is yes the underwriter would then reject the application as the vehicle has a policy already existing. The only time an application with an existing policy would be accepted is if the previous policy was expiring and a fresh policy is required, not with the same insurer. I hope this answers the person asking this question.

Here is the established Legal precedence on Insurance Policies of all types on all types of property in the United States. Policy 1 as PrimaryWhen a covered loss occurs and more than one policy exists insuring the same risks. The policy with the broadest scope of coverage is considered the primary Coverage and will invoke to cover it. Policy Two as PrimaryIf the loss incurred is not covered by the very first policy and is covered by a trailing policy then that policy steps up to Primary coverage for that particular loss. Policy Two as Secondary coverageIf and when the boundaries of the primary policy are reached or exceeded, the next active policy with the broadest scope of coverage will then invoke and act as Secondary coverage if coverage is afforded for the specified risk of loss. Policy Trio trailingIf a third policy exists then it will do so in the same order in consideration of coverage scope and specified risks. If an Umbrella Policy also exists, and this too is common, then it too will go after the exhaustion of any and all previous coverage afforded by active Primary or Secondary or even Third Place Coverage. It is permitted, It is legal and Court precedence has been well established more than 100 years ago as to which policies will apply and in what order. What you can not do is seek “Dual Indemnity” for any covered loss. That would be illegal and a felony offense in the United States.
