A: Usually, all members of the household that are of driving age are listed on the policy. Also, all owners of the vehicle are listed on the policy regardless of their residence address.

Typically, you are sent a declaration page of the insurance coverage and the premium amount. If you opened any of the documents sent to you, none of it should be a huge surprise.
