Car Insurance for Senior Parents' Van

by Sandra
(Peoria, IL)

My parents have made the decision to stop driving this year, however we still use their vehicle to drive them to appointments, pharmacy, store and other misc places. They enjoy their van and can get in and out of it easily, which is great.


My question is once they have officially given up their State of IL drivers license, how do we keep the van (which they own) legally insured. Do you have to be a legally licensed driver in order to insure a vehicle?

I am thinking that my brother who is executor of the estate should be added to the policy as a driver in order to keep the van insured.

Thank you for your help.
