If the owner of the truck allowed an unlicensed driver to take the truck, then the owner is responsible - even if the driver lied about where he was going. If the unlicensed driver just took the truck, then a police report would need to be filed and charges pressed against that person - he can be sued for damages.

If you have full insurance on your car and it is totaled by an unlicensed driver what happens with your insurance and payments for the car?

If this unlicensed driver was driving your car with your knowledge, you are screwed. But if you mean an unlicensed driver hit your car, if you have full coverage you should be able to collect on your insurance. The insurance will make the check to the leinholder and they will give you any excess or expect you to make up any shortage to pay off the loan. In some cases, if you did give permission for the uninsured driver, your insurance company will pay for the loss but make you sign an exclusion stating that the driver will not be covered in the future for any reason. You would be liable for full cost if it happens again. You can also expect a spike in your rates if they reside with you.

If an unlicensed driver was driving your vehicle and got in an accident and totaled it will the insurance pay?

It depends on the conditions of your policy. If there is a clear stipulation that it will not cover any unlicensed drivers, or any drivers not specifically listed for that matter then no they won't pay. If such a condition is not specified and coverage is unconditional (in that respect) then they probably will. Assuming the person survived, and was not taken to jail it is doubtful they would be civily liable for the damages to another victims car (if applicable) hence the policy owner who's name is on the title is ultimately liable.


What happens when adult unlicensed driver hits you and is driving an insured car?

Generally, the owner of the insured car is held liable for any damages or losses involved after an accident. So if you want to file a claim for compensation after a crash, it is better to file it with the owner of the insured car or his insurance company. The adult unlicensed driver however, can be held liable criminally if there was death or injury involved.

Am I covered if an uninsured person who does not have a learners permit is driving my son's car and has an accident?

No, you are not covered and neither is the unscheduled, unlicensed driver. Unfortunately though, since your insurer is also financially liable for certain of your negligent acts, such as, allowing an unscheduled and unlicensed driver to operate your insured vehicle. They may have to pay for the damages resulting from your negligent acts. This should not be confused with the fanciful idea that the unlisted and unlicensed driver was ever covered by your policy. If they have to pay the claim, your Insurer may justifiably decide to cancel your policy due to negligence.

Is it illegal to ride with an unlicensed driver?

Laws vary from state to state. However, I don't know of anywhere that it is illegal, but it is very irresponsible. If a passenger is in the car when the driver is pulled over for driving without a licence, the passenger may be ticketed or jailed, depending on the state, and the passenger would more than likely get a ride home and nothing more. If you know that the driver of a vehicle is not licensed by the state, you should not ride with that driver. If you are in a car accident, the driver cannot be insured if they are unlicensed, and you could be liable for your hospitalization, ambulance and physician's fees.

Who is responsible for an unlicensed driver driving another person vehicle involved in an accident?

The unlicensed driver is responsible for all damages. If they are a minor the parents may be forced to take responsibility. Sadly, the owner of the vehicle MUST make any insurance claims they are eligible to make. The owner can ask the unlicensed driver to pay any excess on the insurance and even take them to court if they refuse to pay it. The driver of the vehicle is responsible to pay any amounts not covered by the vehicles owners insurance, including damages to the car. If the insurance premium goes up or you loose your no claim bonus then I'm sorry but the driver is not liable for that. If the unlicensed driver drove the vehicle without permission from the vehicle owner then the vehicle owner must report that the car was stolen at the time of the accident, then provide the insurance company with the police report number (you can tell the police you don't want to press charges). Under these circumstances even if the insurance company pays out damages for the vehicle they may chase the unlicensed driver to pay them back.

If an unlicensed uninsured minor driving a car with the owners permission has a parking lot accident is the owner liable or the minors parent?

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.
