We bought a car for our daughter, but my husband only put his name on the title, should our daughters name be on it too?

Yes her name has to been on there if she is going to drive the car. If her name is not on there and she gets pulled over you can get a ticked or the car can get towed.

You have to make absolutely sure that she is listed as a driver on the car's insurance policy. Then you are good to go.

It's not require, if her name is not on there she can't say that its her's if she gets pull over. She has to say it's whoever it is and is letting her borrowed it for the moment, but its true in some areas if a cop is being a dick they can detain you until they actually confirm that it's not a stolen vehicle. But if her name is not in with the paper then any damages being done to her during an accident won't cover her.

It needs to be because if she gets a ticket your husband would have to get it out of the pound. Also for legal reasons.
