I am no longer able to drive on medical grounds - can I still insure a car if my son drives it?

I have been advised on medical grounds to voluntarily hand back my driving licence to the DVLA. My son is a named driver on my insurance policy and he is willing to drive for me if I wish to keep the car. Do you think the insurance company would agree to this arrangement?

Unfortunately not, you would no longer be the main user, as you would not have a valid licence to drive. You would have to insure the vehicle in your son's name.
