Lending your vehicle to a friend or relative isn’t as simple as handing over the keys. What if the person who borrows your car is pulled over by the police, or is involved in an accident? The driver will need to prove that you agreed to lend your car. A driver who can’t show written permission from you could be detained while police investigate whether or not the vehicle has been stolen.

You can provide that written proof quickly and easily by completing this form, which makes it clear that the driver has your permission to drive your vehicle. On the form, you’ll simply enter important information—including your insurance policy number, which will help make sure that the driver (and car) will be taken care of if there’s an accident. You can also use this form to set restrictions or limits on the borrower’s use of the car.

This form is designed for a car, but it will work fine for a motorcycle, truck or motorboat.
