Auto insurance follows the car, not the driver, so your grandson will be covered under your auto insurance policy if he is driving your car.

You should check with your insurance agent or company to confirm that unlisted drivers, or someone who might borrow your car, is covered.If he does have an accident in your car, your liability coverage will pay for any damage or injuries to the other party or their vehicle.
