Hi all,


I was wondering if anyone knows the answer to this question,


My father passed away last week and was the registered owner and keeper of his car. I was on his insurance policy as an additional driver.


As he has passed away is the insurance still valid and am I still ok to drive the car?


Thanks in advance.

Each insurance company has different ways of handling this situation. Some will allow you to carry on driving, some won't. A few companies will transfer what's left of the policies term to you.

Best to ring the company, ask for the "personal support team", don't speak to an ordinary customer agent, they may not know all the ins and outs of this situation!


Hope this helps.

Sadly since the policyholder has died the insurance contract has ceased. What you need to do now is advise the insurance company of this and they will make arrangements to cancel the policy.


Do not be tempted to keep driving, in the event of an accident they would need the policyholder to complete paperwork etc and since the policyholder cannot do that they would refuse to deal with any claim for damage to your vehicle.
