  1. You can insure a car even if you're just a learner (as long as you've got your provisional licence) but the premiums will be quite high
  2. Named drivers do not have many restrictions on them, it's the main driver/policyholder who has to be the registered keeper to keep insurers happy
  3. Someone who is banned is not insured anymore because their licence has become invalid; you can certainly insure your husband's car but you may need to get the registration certificate transferred to your name

Hope that helps.
