If your granddaughter occasionally drives your car, she will be covered under your policy as a permissive user. If she causes an accident in your car, your insurance will be responsible for any damage or injuries sustained in the accident. If she has not been listed on your insurance up to that time your insurance company may request information about her. You can explain she is only an occasional operator of the car.However, if she lives with you or is a regular user of your car, then she does need to be listed on your car insurance as a driver.
