Divorced but Sharing One Car

I am divorced, but my ex and I are on good terms and live basically across the street from each other. We are currently sharing one vehicle in Toronto. Can that vehicle be insured under two different names?

I doubt it.
Who is the owner? Car is registered under whose's name and which address?

You 2 live separately. Insure interest is different too .
Car is easy to solved in a divorce. One of you just get your own car, much easier to deal with.

Talk to your broker. But my understanding is that anyone who you lend your car to regularly should be on your insurance policy, even if they don’t live with you. For example, we lent one of our vehicles to a friend for a few months, and had her name put on the policy. No problems with the insurance company.

the insurance policy will read the same as the vehicle ownership. If you are the owner, the policy will be in your name and you can list both of you as drivers

Whoever is the owner of the car must have insurance for the vehicle. Call the insurance company/broker and add the name of the spouse to the policy. That's all.
Paying less is only half the equation. The other half is buying less... ;)

I don't know much about your insurance situation but I will give you credit for being that friendly with your ex. I don't think many others would be in your situation.

Since you are on good terms, pay the insurance and ask your ex for benefits in exchange for riding you.. I mean your car
