I made a phone call
DX helped DS #3 get his license back in May, yet failed to discuss this with me. Fast forward, and apparently DMV automatically contacts one's auto insurance company, alerting them to a newly licensed driver in the family. Although DS would never be allowed to drive either my or DD's car (we rely on our cars for work and can't afford any accidents due to an inexperienced driver), we had to sign a document to this effect AND had to pay $145 for an excluded driver. @@ Technically, X should have DS on his policy-really not my problem.
Fast forward, same DS decided not to move to the city with us, choosing to move in with Dad, and use one of his many vehicles. I remembered this stupid $145 fee the other day, so I called the auto insurance company and asked why we had to pay it, as DS never moved with us back in June. Turns out, I can get it refunded. Had I known, it would have been in effect starting in June, instead it is in effect as of Aug, so I eat 1/2 of the original fee, the remainder is being refunded to my credit card. So approx. $75 back in the coffers, the other 1/2 DS owes me.
