Correspondingly, can a 16 year old have a car under his name?
Answer: State laws vary greatly regarding at what age someone can title a car in their own name. And yes, if the teen owns the car, he can still be under his parent's insurance policy. In fact, that is recommended because car insurance for young drivers is more expensive when the teen has his own policy.
Also, can a vehicle be titled in the name of a minor? TITLE ISSUED IN THE NAME OF A MINOR. A vehicle cannot be titled in the name of a minor [a person who has not yet attained the age of eighteen (18) years or who is not emancipated or married]. The Uniform Transfers to Minors Act, however, allows the transfer of a vehicle to a minor's custodian.
Similarly, can you register a car at 16?
A “Minor's Filing” is sent to the Department of Motor Vehicles to officially prove that the minor has a valid insurance policy. Once the DMV receives the “Minor's Filing”, the minor is then able to register the vehicle.
Can you put a car in your name at 17?
