Is a valid license required to purchase a car?

Yes, you must have a valid driver's license to purchase a vehicle....from a dealer. If you purchase from a private party (like a used vehicle), they don't require a valid driver's license. But you will be required to have one if you register the vehicle. *** I work in the home health industry, and we have several clients who own there own vehicles but no longer have a license. They keep the vehicles so that they can be driven to appointments and do errands.
