Can I drive a car that's insured without telling the insurance company?

I want a learners permit and my parents said it ok as long as there insurance doesn't rase. Even a dollar is to much. Can I possibly drive under my moms insurance and use her name or do I have to tell the insurance company, and if I do how much will it go up so I know how much I need to give them each month.

    You can practice under your mothers' policy without telling them. But you need to be rated when you get your license to protect you and your mom's rates. It's better to be rated when you first get licensed than be forced to be rated after an accident. If that happens, you get a no insurance ticket, license suspended, huge fines for that, plus you will then be rated as a youthful operator, with no prior, and an accident. Not Good. I see this happen at least twice a week.

    Insurers have an obligation to cover you to drive other cars. If a term or condition stipulates that you may not driver another vehicle and you are stopped by police, point them to the RTA 88 and the obligation that the insurance cartel have to provide road risk cover. It is the person that is insured not the vehicle.
