I did not understand fully what you said above. So let's clear the confusion:

  1. On the insurance policy, who is the main driver?
  2. On the registration certificate for DVLA, who is the registered keeper?

1) me
2) husband

Thank you

What's worrying you is the fact you're not the registered keeper but your husband is, right? But on your insurance documents, you've put yourself as the keeper of the vehicle. If that's the case, then the insurance company can try to make things harder with your claim because of incorrect information supplied but I doubt they are allowed to reject your claim and invalidate your insurance just for that reason.
