You would be allowed to drive his car if you were a named driver on his policy. Not quite sure how you can be a "named" driver on your own car. If someone else has insured it for you it might be declared invalid if anything happened, "fronting" is the term used by insurers I think.

If you insure your car in your own name then most policies allow you to drive other cars with the owners permission but would normally only give third party cover on cars which you are driving with permission.

i have just looked at my policy and it states:

Persons or classes of persons entitled to drive:

The policyholder

The policyholder may also drive with the owners permission a motor car not owned by the policy holder and not hired or leased to the policyholder under a hire purchase or annual leasing agreement, - that is my dad.

Any person who is named below who is driving on the policyholders order or with the policyholders permission: A Malhotra (me) providing that the person driving holds a license to drive such motor car or has held is not disqualified for holding or obtaining such a license.

let me rephrase my post. the car is owned by my dad. so tax insurance v5 e.t.c is all in his name, i also drive the car. sorry for any confusion. no part of the car is in my name

No worries then on that score as that puts a different slant to it, although technically he must be the main driver and I would assume he has declared that he owns any other cars he is insuring in his name.

Easiest way is to "bite the bullet" and insure in your name and start to build(hopefully) your own NCD.

Have you checked with the current insurers of the Honda to see if they have any facility to allow you, as a named driver on that policy, to also drive other cars with permissions in the same way as the policyholder can?

If you are the policyholder of a fully comp insurance policy, then that allows you to drive any car with the owners permission but you only have third party cover on the other vehicles.

That's the only way I think if you're talking about not paying extra.

But he isn't the policyholder....his dad is. That's why I say for him to insure the car himself.....it seems like his car with his dad fronting it by registering it in his name (no offence Anuj) to get cheaper cover, although I'm sure to be wrong!

Hi at the end of the day with premiums for young drivers in high areas running into the £2000 + mark its not suprising they are forced to find a cheaper way round it ( better than no insurance at all ). Im sure Anuj meant the car he is insuared to drive on & not his car, a practical car for his dad to drive around locally in I expect :D

Ahh, my bad for skim reading :whistling:

Yep as a named driver you won't be able to drive anything else - either way I wouldn't drive under third party cover nowadays unless it was unavoidable.

    • All-new Lexus RX: luxury expressed in interior design simplicity
      Lavish details and flourishes are not necessarily the best way to express luxury. A “less is more” approach with design simplicity can be a much more effective way to communicate high quality, as witnessed in the interior of the all-new Lexus RX

    • 10 years of Lexus design: from spindle grille to spindle body
      After 10 years as a defining style feature of every new Lexus model, the famous spindle grille is undergoing a transformation. In tune with a new era of electrified vehicles, the distinctive shape is evolving into a new “spindle body,” as seen on the upcoming new generation Lexus RX SUV and the all-electric RZ.

      The spindle grille has been an unmistakeable Lexus feature since it was first revealed on the LF-Gh concept model of 2011, the basis for the fourth generation GS executive saloon that was launched the following year. Since then, it has been constantly adapted to suit the character of each successive Lexus model, with different mesh patterns, dimensions and finishes.


      Speaking at the time of the grille’s debut, the then Head of Lexus Kiyotake Ise said: “You should be able to identify a car as a Lexus immediately… Instant visual recognition, for example, is the reason behind our spindle grille. It may look aggressive at first glance, that’s intentional, but it also conveys its boldness with sophistication and elegance.”


      It has progressed to become a hallmark expression of Lexus’s L-finesse design, adopted not only for road-going cars, but also incorporated in the futuristic Skyjet spacecraft created for the Lexus-supported movie Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets and adopted as a design motif in the Loft, the award-winning Lexus and Brussels Airlines lounge at Brussels Airport.


      Today, the original grille concept is the starting point for a more radical application of the spindle shape in which it becomes an integral part of the vehicle’s overall design. This “spindle body” approach is part of the Lexus Next Chapter design for the all-new RX, where the grille is reinterpreted as a seamless unit that flows into the bodywork. The lower section retains a mesh pattern, while the upper section takes in the lower edge of the bonnet; the Lexus emblems sits at the centre of the spindle’s high pinch-point.


      The same concept has been applied to the RZ 450e. As a battery electric vehicle, this requires less cooling than a car with a conventional engine, so the grille has been dispensed with, giving the designers greater freedom. Nonetheless, the spindle shape remains prominent in a central front panel, finished in the car’s body colour. Its impact is heightened by the adjacent frontal areas being contrast-finished in black, the low bonnet line and more boldly shaped front wings.

      On both models, the spindle generates lines that flow back from the front of the car through the bonnet and headlamp units to create a strong and distinctive frontal appearance, reinforcing the brand-defining ambitions of the original concept.
