What would you like to do?
When it doubt, ALWAYS ASK to see a valid driver license before handing them the keys. Most states will even allow you to verify it online provided you have it right in front o…f you.
Answer Is the CAR insured? If not, it's not legal.
What happens no drivers license but car is insured in someone else's name and you are involved in car accident?
***UK answer*** Depends if the car is registered to your or the other person. If its your car then you will be done for driving with no insurance or driving whilst …banned or driving with no license or a combination of the three. However if its not your car and you borrowed it you will again be charged with driving with no license and insurance, (If no license then you dont have insurance, the driver must be insured not the car) but whoever you got the car from could also be charged with knowingly allowing a vehicle to be driven illegally (illegally because you - the driver had no insurance and license), if you dont want to get the other person in trouble - or they may say you took it if they dont want the trouble - then you will probably be charged with TWOC (taking without consent) as well as no driving with no license and insurance. The other persons insurance may pay out if you are found to have taken the car without consent as most cars are insured for theft. However the owner will have to prove this and if there is reason for doubt they wont pay out - unless the police say you did it, but then you will be charged. If its your car and you just dont have insurance yet but (for example) your mate has insured it for him to use while you cant drive it then im afraid it looks like you may have a heavy bill for the other cars you damaged and also court costs and legal fees if you get arrested...not to mention the heavy fine you'll get!
In Illinois Can you get a ticket for driving someone else's car with an expired license plate sticker?
Oh, yeah, you sure can.
Your friend may sue you, and tell you to pay the wrecking bill, or they'll forgive you and they'll pay it. But the wreck will go under your name, and charged against you…. I hope that helps!
it can if they find that you lied about your car being stolen.
What happens is at the discretion of the officer that stops you and the guidelines for that particular state. The officer may merely ticket and release you for no drivers lice…nse since the car is at least insured. But he has the authority to arrest you and impound the car. He also has the authority to ticket the owner of the vehicle if they knowingly allowed an unlicensed driver to operate their vehicle.
If you wreck someone else's car and that person's auto insurance covers the damages can the car owner still sue you for damages to their car after the accident?
Generally, if the vehicle is totalled as a result of the collision and the owner had collision coverage, the insurer will pay to the owner the actual cash value of the vehicle… as of the time of the loss. This usually equates to the value of a car of like kind and quality (including mileage, accessories and condition) as of the time of the collision. Because of its payment to its insured, the insurer becomes "subrogated" to the right of action of its insured so that it can try to get its money back from you. You will have the same defenses against the insurer as you would have had against the other driver (for example, that the other driver was partially or entirely at fault for the collision). The subrogation action that the insurer files often includes a claim for the insured's deductible, but it may not. If it does, the insured cannot again make a claim for it; if it does not, the other driver can file suit against you for the deductible and other unreimbursed expenses that he/she may have incurred and that were proximately caused by the collision. Further, if the person is injured and if the injuries are of a type that permits him/her to file suit (usually defined in terms of seriousness), you can be sued for bodily injury damages. Your liability insurer has the obligation to defend you by providing an attorney at its expense and paying amounts for which you are found legally liable up to the limits available under the insurance policy. This is also true with regard to a property damage claim. If a judgment is entered against you and remains unpaid, there can be implications for your credit. Additionally, under the Financial Responsibility Law of many states, if a judgment from an auto collision remains unpaid for a stated period of time, your driver's license and tags may be suspended until payment arrangements have been made. You may also be required to obtain and maintain a special form of high-risk liability insurance (sometimes referred to as an SR-22) for a period of time, but this depends upon State law.
It is illegal to drive in any US state, to drive any car, if you do not have a driving license.
You will be cited for not having a license and people would bill you for any damage you caused.
Nothing - provided the vehicle was mechanically sound ! If the driver was silly enough to be involved in an accident - it's THEIR responsibility - not yours !
Car insurance is just that: insurance for the car. When a contract between the insured and the insurance company is purchased, it is based on the driver and the vehicle. If th…e driver takes someone else's vehicle, the insurance is only for the original car. There would be no pay out for someone else's car. Example: Driver A buys insurance for Vehicle A valued at $5,000. Driver A uses Vehicle B that is valued at $35,000. The insurance cost is obviously not the same therefore the coverage is not there. In the event of bodily injury, coverage up to the agreed limits are there. Remember, health insurance does not cover care and or treatment due to a vehicular accident. I hope this helps clarify the questions.
In Car Selling
umm... not sure in all states but yea. Its called stealing with out the title. If you really want to know check your local state tax commission.
What happens if you wreck someones car who has insurance but you have no license and they are not pressing charges?
If they are not pressing charges, then they are giving you permission to drive their vehicle. If you give someone who doesn't have a drivers license permission to drive your v…ehicle, you are voiding your insurance coverage. The Insurance company will not pay.
You will definitely have to the pay for wrecking someone car.
You are the one legally in the care, custody, and control of the vehicle and therefore are the one who will be cited for driving without insurance. This is just the beginning …of your trouble though. If you were at fault, you are also responsible for the damages done in the accident which may include injuries and damages to the vehicle you hit.
