When you add someone to your car insurance, you can call your car insurance company or log into your online account to add a new driver to your policy. Your insurance company will generally need the name, date of birth, driving history, license information, and vehicle identification number (VIN) if you also plan to share a policy that covers both vehicles. Many insurers, including Progressive, allow you to add a friend to an auto insurance policy as a driver if you share a permanent residence. Most insurers will also allow you to share a joint car insurance policy with a friend by adding both sets of cars to the policy.
If your friend doesn't live with you, it usually can't be added to your policy. Your commercial auto insurance company will prepare a report on all drivers with access to their commercial vehicles. Drivers with accidents or violations in their driving history will generally cause their fare to increase. You can expect your insurance company to consider the last three years of driving history.

If you and your friend don't currently share an address, they won't be able to be listed on your car insurance policy even if you plan to move later. The cost of adding a driver to your car insurance or sharing a policy varies depending on factors such as the driver's age and motor vehicle history.
In all but four states, your credit-based insurance rating can have a big impact on your car insurance rates, and Utah is no different. The table below includes the average cost of car insurance in five Utah cities and how the rate differs from the average state premium. Sharing an auto insurance policy, on the other hand, typically means that both vehicles are covered by a single policy.
