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
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.
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.
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...
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.
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.
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.
Both are held liable.
Depends on the insurance company. There are companies that will insure unlicensed drivers.
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.
Driver's licensure is a condition of getting auto insurance.
Maybe. Did the unlicensed driver have your permission to be operating the car when the accident occurred? If so, maybe not.
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.
you can insure a car with no license
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.
No If you own it, you have an insurable interest and can buy insurance. The company will want to know who will be driving.
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.
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.
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.
No. You must have a valid driver's license to insure your car.
