This type of auto insurance provides only liability insurance and excludes every person besides the one who’s insured. This eliminates the variable risk for the insurer. You can add uninsured motorist coverage and personal injury protection to the policy. Basically, this is the bare-bones coverage for only you as the policy holder, no one else driving your car is covered.
