Can I add my son to my car insurance if he hasn't passed his test yet?

I want my son to have my car but I will be the main driver as he hasn't passed his test yet. What is the correct way to do this if we are at the same address?

Put him on your policy until which point he passes his test, then give him the car, let him arrange his own policy but then put you on as a named driver, as he will then be the main one.
