CA Vehicle code: 12500A -- unlicensed driver
You do not have to be the original owner to be on the insurance. You just need to call the insurance carriers company and ask that you be added as a driver on that vehicle.
Car insurance typically follows the owner of the vehicle, not the driver. In the cae of an "excluded driver", unless that driver has his own policy that assumes coverage for a "borrowed" car, the original vehicle owner would be considered pursuable as an uninsured motorist.
The driver is responsible for the vehicle.
Why not. That unlicensed vehicle owner could be disabled and hired a licensed driver to drive the vehicle.
General Patton's original driver in WWII was Warren George Schumacher of Richland Center, WI. Schumacher was subsequently replaced, and was not the driver involved in the General's fatal vehicle accident.
Only if the other driver was at fault. If the driver of the uninsured vehicle was at fault, the injured person would have to recover damages from them.
driver of parked vehicle
As far as states go I know in Utah it is the vehicle not the driver that is insured.
Under the California Lemon Law, one that has made multiple repair attempts under the manufacturer’s factory warranty on a vehicle can be compensated for it.
If the other vehicle was parked, there was no other driver to have license, insurance or registration. The driver who hit the parked vehicle is at fault and is liable for all damages to the parked vehicle.
Depends on the state laws. Typically driver insurance coverage is extended to any driver of the vehicle insured. Insurance covers the vehicle and any legally licensed driver with permission to operate the vehicle.
Yes. If the passenger is hurt in an accident caused by the driver, the passenger is fully entitled to sue the driver. In fact even if the passenger is a spouse of the driver, the passenger can sue.
The principal driver is the person who drives the vehicle over 50% of the time. This is the main driver of the vehicle and the person who will be rated as the driver for computing the cost of the insurance.
Most rental companies won't rent vehicles to anyone under 21 years of age, but they may allow someone between the ages of 18 and 20 to be on the paperwork as an additional driver.
Upon request by a law enforcement office, the driver of a motor vehicle is to present a copy of the insurance coverage for the vehicle. If the driver cannot produce a valid proof of insurance then the driver may be cited for violation of California vehicle code section 16028 (a) as shown below:16028. (a) Upon the demand of a peace officer pursuant tosubdivision (b) or upon the demand of a peace officer or trafficcollision investigator pursuant to subdivision (c), every person whodrives a motor vehicle upon a highway shall provide evidence offinancial responsibility for the vehicle that is in effect at thetime the demand is made. However, a peace officer shall not stop avehicle for the sole purpose of determining whether the vehicle isbeing driven in violation of this subdivision.
The driver that hit the parked vehicle would be at fault.
No. No fault means exactly that. The driver not responsible for the accident cannot be held liable for injuries to any passengers in the at fault vehicle.
If the uninsured driver had the permission of the insured driver to operate the vehicle then NOTHING will happen to the uninsured driver. In fact, in this case he or she is not an uninsured driver at all. The insurance follows the vehicle first, the driver second.
Someone that is not the Driver or Controller of a Vehicle that is still traveling in the Vehicle.
If they're a licensed driver supervising a learner's permit driver, yes.
I believe that I understand what you are asking. If I am not correct ask it again and I will try to do better. Auto insurance generally follows the vehicle and not the driver. Only the person who owns the vehicle can insure are vehicle except in a situation of an immediate family. One policy can cover members of the family even if the vehicle is in the name of other members of the family as long as they all live in the same household.
If the turning vehicle was struck by a vehicle entering the roadway it would be the the fault of the vehicle entering the roadway.HOWEVER, if the entering vehicle was struck by the turning vehicle, it is the fault of the turning driver.
