No one. If the person does not have a valid license they cannot be insured for any type of coverage concerning motor vehicles. not true just get your motorcycle permit and you can get insured i know plenty of people who dont have motorcycle licence and have insurance

Yes, if he is the owner and has another driver he can name as primary. That said, most insurers will insure only licensed drivers and will require documentation of licensure at the time of application and of issuance of the policy.

Why not. That unlicensed vehicle owner could be disabled and hired a licensed driver to drive the vehicle.

both, you for hitting the other vehicle and the other driver for being unlicensed

As the driver is unlicensed it could be argued that they did not know how to behave on the road and therefore were the cause of the collision.

User Avatar

They both are. The logic being that the unlicensed driver shouldn't have been there in the first place, and would not have been involved in the accident if they'd been in compliance with the law.

User Avatar

No, I have never seen a citation for carrying insurance for an unlicensed driver. I recommend that all drivers should be insurance whether they are licensed or not.

It all depends on the policy. If the unlicensed driver is a named insured and the policy is active then they will be covered. If the unlicensed driver is excluded from coverage then naturally there is no coverage for them. If the unlicensed driver is not a named insured and also not excluded, Then technically they still are not a covered driver, although, coverege may still apply under the owners auto policy depending on the circumstances of any accident and the owners liability under permissive use rules if the vehicle owner allowed an unlicensed driver to operate the vehicle.

You can try to sue the unlicensed driver, but if they don't have the money to pay any damages awarded, you are well and truly up the creek.

Depends on the insurance company. There are companies that will insure unlicensed drivers.

I have known people to buy vehicle without a driver's license, but I don't believe you can insure it. You probably could get storage insurance, or maybe insure it with someone else as a primary driver. But most likely the insurance will have to be purchased by someone else. im an auto insurance agent.... in some states, you may insure your car even if you dont have a valid driver license. you may also buy your own car in some dealerships. you just gotta look for them...

User Avatar

Maybe. Did the unlicensed driver have your permission to be operating the car when the accident occurred? If so, maybe not.

User Avatar

No If you own it, you have an insurable interest and can buy insurance. The company will want to know who will be driving.

User Avatar

You can insure the car if you list those drivers on the policy.

User Avatar

The majority of the time no because it is an insured's policyholder's duty not to let unlicensed people driver their car because they cannot legally drive.

User Avatar

Both the Driver and the Owner are liable for the damages. The driver, whether licensed or not is the primarily liable party. The insured passenger owner is secondarily liable for damages by the unlicensed driver he permitted to operate his vehicle.

User Avatar

Driving in a car at any age without a license is illegal. If caught, the car will be towed away and impounded. the licensed driver in the car may also lose his license for allowing the unlicensed driver to drive.

User Avatar

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.

User Avatar

they get in jail for not having a licence and driving.

User Avatar

An unlicensed driver will probably get cited for not having a license and may even get their car impounded, but is not automatically at fault. The person that the police and insurance company determine caused the accident would be at fault.

User Avatar

Let's see if I can follow this. Insurance company A is at fault because of actions caused by driver A. Driver B who is not at fault is injured, but is unlicensed, and Auto B has been totalled. Insurance company A is going to have to pay damages to Driver B for property damage as well as for injuries because Driver A is deemed at fault. The fact that Driver B is unlicensed is a non-moving violation and Driver B will have to pay a substantial fines for these issues.

Yes, but they will not insure YOU as the driver.Your car should allways be insured for Teft, fire Vandalisum.If you are going to have a friend or relitive drive it that driver will need to be the Driver on the policy.

User Avatar

The driver that hit you. Not knowing all the circumstances, the unlicensed driver would be at fault in the driving aspect, and in the fact that he/she should not have been on the road at all. Just a personal opinion

CA Vehicle code: 12500A -- unlicensed driver

Yes, and there's a good chance they will.
