Can I drive someone else's car?

You can check if you are insured to drive someone else's car by reading your Certificate of Motor Insurance.

You are insured to driver other cars if your Certificate says:

"The policy holder may also drive a vehicle with the permission of the owner of a motor car not owned by the policy holder and not hired to him/her under a hire purchase agreement."
(You should see this under the section 'Insured persons')

If your Certificate does not contain this phrase, you are not insured to drive other cars.

Please note: If you are insured to drive other cars, your cover is only Third-Party (Damage to another person's property & injury to another person or any passenger(s) you are carrying).
