TDI Issues Bulletin on Named Driver Policies

As many of you may know, the 86th Texas Legislature passed House Bill 259, (Ed Thompson) which no prevents the use of named driver insurance policies.  House Bill 259 prohibits insurers from delivering, issuing for delivery, or renewing named driver policies on or after January 1, 2020. The prohibition does not apply to operators’ policies, as defined in Texas Transportation Code Section 601.077 (ex. usually an SR-22).  A named driver policy may not be renewed in 2020, but some named driver policies may be in effect after January 1, 2020 if in force before the deadline.
