My daughter will also be switching to a North Dakota drivers license soon.
Would you just give her the car and let her get a North Dakota registration or would you keep it and just keep the Maine registration active and not worry about the Maine sticker?
Any other things I should consider?
I found the following in my auto insurance contract.
“Your unmarried dependent children temporarily away from home will qualify as a relative if they intend to continue to reside in your household.”
My daughter will be getting her North Dakota drivers license and she will become a North Dakota resident!
Do you think because of that statement in my contract the safest thing to do would be register the car in her name and have the insurance in her name?
