Do you have to have insurance if you have a drivers license but do not own vehicle?

In most situations, the insurance follows the vehicle, therefore, if you don't have a vehicle you would not have a need to have insurance. You still have the responsibility to make sure that any vehicle that you do drive is insured. If you borrow someone's car and drive it, you have the care, custody, and control of the vehicle and you are legally responsible to make sure it has the legally required coverage. If you drive an uninsured vehicle, you will be ticketed.

What happens if you let a friend borrow your car that is uninsured but the friend has non-owners insurance and he gets into an accident that wasn't his fault?

In a vehicle accident with property damage whose insurance is responsible the driver's or the owner's?

The registered owner is only required to furnish liability insurance.

It's not nice to borrow someones vehicle, wreck it and then claim ""not my responsibility". after all, you did borrow the vehicle.

If you have full coverage insurance and let a minor borrow your car will they still be covered?

If you have a minor driving your vehicle without having them listed on your insurance policy, then the insurance company will most likely deny any and all coverage if they should ever have an accident in the vehicle. You are not paying for insurance for them to drive the vehicle, so why should you expect them to pay the claim? You policy states that you agree to notify the company of all drivers and by not doing that you have committed material misrepresentation which means you broke the contract. If you broke the contract they are not liable to keep their part of the contract.

Assuming that the driver of the borrowed car was at fault, both the owner and driver can be held liable. The injured party will probably sue both.

Can you get auto insurance with out having a car?

Even if you do not own a car, you still need insurance protection if you drive one. The auto you borrow, rent, or use may have proper insurance coverage, but you also should protect yourself with personal liability protection. Here is how to get it: Ask for the cost of higher liability coverage based on the assets you own and your projections of future income to be protected. For your protection, consider purchasing as much liability insurance coverage as you can afford Ask the insurance company or agent about your state's minimum liability coverage rules. States differ in the minimum liability insurance coverage they require. Analyze your assets, including home, furniture, art, clothing, computer, electronics, and all other personal assets. Get quotes for liability insurance only. Estimate your future income. This is important because, like life insurance, you want to protect your future income as much as possible. This calculation often results in a larger amount than all of your personal assets. I wish you the best

Who is responsible if you borrow a car and insure it under your name but you let the insurance lapse?

Firstly, you cannot insure a vehicle that you do not own. Secondly, with the insurance lapsed there is no coverage anyway. I would expect that the other party who you hit will sue both the owner and the driver of the vehicle as both have a degree of liability.
