Yes, if the vehicle is registered, in most states, you must have it insured. If the officer asks for proof of insurance, you are required to show it to him. If you do not have it, he may issue you a ticket. It does not matter if the car was in motion or parked.

How can you find out if a person in accident has insurance if the police says there was no proof?

No proof just means that they didn't have a proof of insurance card. That's the cut out card your insurance sends you and says "keep in your car." The requirements for each state varies, Oregon doesn't require drivers to show proof of insurance, they just have to show registration and license. If you have the ID of the driver, contact your insurance and give them all the details you can. If the driver told you an insurance they have, your insurance can contact that company and find out. Personally if someone in an accident doesn't have proof of insurance, and that also means no expired cards, I'd be towing that car and sticking them with a hefty citation.

If you had insurance at the time of the citation and take proof of insuranc to the judge, he will USUALLY dismiss the ticket. Unfortunately, you will have to appear in person to do that, and there is no guarantee that it will be dismissed, so be respectful to the judge. Absolutely.

Can a dealership sell a car to a person who has no license or insurance?

It may depend on the state the vehicle is registered in. In California, proof of insurance is required in order to register a vehicle, which is done when you purchase a car, and you need a license when purchasing auto insurance. I know in California that dealership wouldn't be able to transfer title to a person who doesn't have insurance since the DMV would require proof. Ask a dealership in your state for specific requirements.
