Yes. This is a classic bailor/bailee situation and the shop was required to protect you car very diligently or pay for any damages incurred. Your insurance if you had it, wouldn't have been involved. The shop is your first recourse and he should have insurance.

The thief who stole the car is liable for the damages he caused. The owner of the stolen vehicle is a victim also of the same Thief. You my seek compensation from your own insurance policy if you have full coverage options.

Both the Driver and the Owner are liable for the damages. The driver, whether licensed or not is the primarily liable party. The insured passenger owner is secondarily liable for damages by the unlicensed driver he permitted to operate his vehicle.

The insurance company is not liable for paying damages. The minor was knowingly breaking the law by driving w/o a license. The parent of the child will be held liable for damages. As will the person/owner of the vehicle if they knew the minor was not a legally licensed driver. If you let an un liscensed/uninsured minor driver your vehicle, your asking for it. If you werent the parent of the minor, they could sue you as well for neglect.
