No, if you never drive, you don't need insurance. You need insurance if you own a vehicle. And, if you drive someone else's car and get in an accident and don't have insurance it could be a big mess. Call a few insurance agencies and see what they recommend if you plan to drive at all.

And, if you do not drive at all, you might want to reconsider the added expense (small though it might be) of obtaining a driver's license when a state ID will satisfy any potential legal requirements for carrying identification.

If what person is driving the person that was hit or the person that hit?

Sure. If you have no valid license, you have no business driving a car at all. If you weren't driving illegally, you wouldn't have had the accident.

It can depend on WHY it was suspended. Insurance? Fail to pay tickets? Forgot to get it renewed?

User Avatar

No, you don't need insurance to pay the ticket. However, Since almost all U.S. states these days will suspend your drivers license for having been found guilty of driving without insurance. You will need to buy insurance before you can get the drivers license suspension lifted.

License, registration, and proof of insurance.

Yes the insurance carrier of the person at fault will pay for the damages if they are in fact proved to be at fault. However you will be cited for driving without a license.

If you have no drivers license then you have no business driving a vehicle, therfore you do not need insurance.

You can be convicted for number of faults if you are driving without a driving license. For example you can also be convicted for not having insurance. Because driving without valid driving license invalidates your insurance also.

Often out of state tickets will not show up on your license if you just pay them. Failing to pay a ticket brings it to the attention of the state, and it gets put into the state drivers license database. Once that happens, the insurance companies get a copy of it and it affects your insurance rates.

You will be punished for the violations that you have for driving with a suspended license and for driving without insurance. These punishments will be severe but vary from state to state. The violations on your part will not effect the fault of the accident and if the other party is truly at fault then their insurance company will pay for your damages incurred in the accident.

Most, if not all insurance companies checked your driving record so they know already.

NO! Driving on a revoked license is deliberat act, providing that you knew you are not supposed to drive.

If you have car insurance ,police will never stop you even if you dont have driving license.

User Avatar

Yes. You can even get insurance without a license. However, if you get into an accident and you're found driving alone on a permit, or you're found driving without a license, it will void your policy.

Provisional license insurance is insurance for people who have a provisional drivers license. A provisional license is for drivers under the age of 16 who are driving with a learners permit or a person who has previously had a license revoked or suspended and who has recently obtained a new license.

If you have a current insurance policy and are in a car accident, but have an expired license, it is up to the insurance company if they will pay the claim or not. It could be in their clause not to, if a person does not have a valid drivers license, especially if you are the one at fault.

No. No kind of insurance covers drunk driving.

User Avatar

i'd say both you not that much but who wrecked it is the one to put the blame on The insurance is for the car regardless of who is driving. It will be the first to pay. If it doesn't cover enough, the person driving can be tapped for the remainder. If the person driving does not have a license, the owner of the car has to pay out of their own pocket. The insurance company does not have to pay.

You can definitely exclude your spouse from your auto insurance. They shouldn't be driving if their license is suspended so they don't need insurance.
