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.

Do you mean you have an invalid car tag or do not have a valid drivers license? If you have a valid car tag and have a friend or relative with a valid driver's license and valid insurance, you can get that person to drive your car for you after you pay all the fees. That person does not have to be insured to drive your car. If you do not have a valid car tag, you might be able to hire a tow truck. That way you can leave your car there until you can get a valid license and insurance and stop running up pound fees.
