Doubt your license will be suspended his might, but you run a risk of losing your plates and any plates in your name, along with fines etc. This is a state specific thing. In my state, the owners of uninsured vehicles (if they were NOT the driver) lose their plates, and the uninsured driver loses their licence. Check with your states dept of insurance and they will be able to answer this.

What happens to your drivers license when you are at fault in an auto accident and you do not have car insurance?

%REPLIES%. Answer . dl suspension for one yr and your going to need an sr22 for 3 yrs.. its not good. Answer . You probably will be arrested and if you are unable to pay the costs in full to the victim(s) you may be looking at some deep jail time, your driver license can actually be suspended for anywhere from 1- to TEN years depending on what state you live in but if the damages aren't paid, forget about ever seeing your picture on a license again.\n. \nBy the way, the 3-7 period a SR-22 is required starts when you are released from jail and your license is reinstated, not the day of the accident..

Involved in a not-at-fault accident is it your fault or the owner's for driving their uninsured car if you thought it was insured?

Ultimately, the driver is responsible for everything that that is caused by or contributed to while the driver is in the vehicle. Lights don't work? Drivers fault. Not insured? Drivers fault. Answer If you drive a car that is not insured you can be ticketed for that. If you were not at fault in the accident then hopefully the other driver had insurance otherwise the damage to your friends car will have to be paid out of pocket. If that were the case then you could attempt to take the at fault driver to court. It is the responsibility of the owner of the vehicle to have the vehicle insured. Answer The law clearly states that it is the driver's resposibility to make sure that the vehicle he/she is driving is properly insured and there are no acceptions, you will be ticketed.

How do you get car insurance if you have a provisional suspended license?

Answer If you have a suspended license you shouldn't be driving and won't need car insurance. On the other hand, if you are attempting to comply with a court order to get car insurance before getting a provisional license, you may have to go to one of the insurance companies that cover special needs. Call around to different insurance companies to see whether they will write a policy that covers what you want. It may cost extra though. OR... just call an insurance company Like NationWide and they will do it in the State of Washington. I just did.

Will your boyfriends car insurance cover the accident if your license was suspended at the time?

Answer . Assuming you were the one driving his car, yes his insurance will cover his car. The insurance company may drop his coverage for 'irresponsible behaviour' by allowing another person to drive it AND that person had a suspended license. However, your boyfriend could take you to court for the damages rather than file a claim with his insurance company. Technically, you are responsible for his car and you would lose in court.

What can you do if your son who does not live at home was involved in an auto accident with your car but the insurance company claims he is more than an occasional driver?

Occasional Drivers . Basically the definition is as follows. Any person who has regular access to your vehicle would not be considered an occasional driver.. If your son has insurance on his own vehicle then that coverage would follow him to a borrowed vehicle and there would be no need for this question. If he has no other auto or auto insurance and / or his drivers license reflects your home address, then obviously he is an authorized regular driver of your vehicle. Where the person lives, At home, not at home, does not determine his status as an occasional or regular driver. The question is does he have regular access to the vehicle in question whenever he needs or wants to drive.. The best way to prove that he is an occasional driver would be to demonstrate that he owned his own vehicle at the time of the accident, that his vehicle was insured at the time. that the address on his drivers license reflects an address other than yours and that his vehicle was registered at his home address which is also not your address.. State laws require that Drivers Licenses and Vehicles be registered at the address of the owner. If he had no vehicle, no insurance, and/or had a vehicle or drivers license registered at your address then it would likely be impossible to prove that he is only an occasional driver.

What happens if an uninsured driver in an insured car is cited for a traffic violation or is involved in an accident?

Answer . \nInsurance follows the car, not the driver. If you had permission to use it you should be fine. If you were cited for a traffic violation, you should just pay it ahead of time and then apologize profusely to your friend, since you just raised his rates for several years. If there was an accident and it involved any serious amount of money / injury, shell out the $70 and ask an attorney.

An insured driver is unknowingly driving an uninsured car and has an accident The owner of the uninsured car is injured Who pays for the uninsured owners injuries?

If you are driving without insurance and are involved in an accident that is not your fault who is responsible for damages to your car What legal consequences are involved for the uninsured driver?

If he is insured, then it is his insurance company that is responsible. ** Depending on your states laws, you can loose your drivers license for up to a year for not having insurance and being involved in an accident.

In a three car pile up who's insurance pays when the third car is uninsured?

This depends on the specific state's laws in which you live. Generally in a pile-up the insurance companies duke it out, and often each goes through his/her own company for coverage, which would leave the uninsured motorist with no coverage for their vehicle. For injuries, depending on fault, you may possibly draw from the uninsured motorist coverage.

Can a uninsured licensed driver drive a insured drivers car?

The rules and laws of insurance vary from state to state but generally speaking it is the automobile that is insured not the driver.

Can you claim to an auto insurance if you had a minor car accident but you don't have a driver's license but your car insurance its on your dad's name?

Driving without a license is a crime. If you report that you where driving your dad's care without a license, you could get yourself into trouble, and put your dad's rates though the roof. Do not call the insurance company and tell them you where driving unlicensed. If you have your permit, and where driving legally with a licensed driver, and you had an accident in your dad's car, yes, you can report it and his insurance may cover it if he has that type of policy. If anything, your dad could report that he had the accident, though that would be dishonest.

If you get in a car accident with no insurance do you lose your license?

Not necessarily, as long as you pay for the damages to the other vehicle and fines related to the accident. However, if you don't pay , the other driver has the right to take you to court and obtain a Judgment against you and enforce it. Such Judgment is under the guidelines of Non Payment of Judgment and then the DMV will suspend your license nationwide and will not reinstate it until all damages are paid in full.

Can our license be suspended if you have no car insurance?

yes it can be... my brother had to pay a fee until he got it back Let's expand a bit on the above answer. Not having car insurance is not an offence. Driving a vehicle on public roadways without insurance is an offence. If you are convicted of this offense and issued a fine, and if you do not pay this fine in a manner prescribed by the court, your drivers licence can be suspended until you pay the fine, at which time you will be required to pay an additional $150.00 for reinstatement. This is for the province of Ontario, Canada. Many other jurisdictions have similar laws.

Will an uninsured licensed driver be ticketed when driving an insured car in an accident?

Yes. If the driver is not an insured, the uninsured driver can be ticketed even if the car itself is insured. In many U.S. states they will also impound the vehicle when it is found being driven by an uninsured driver. It is the responsibility of the vehicle owner to insure that anyone you let drive has appropriate coverage. Unfortunate there is a lot of misinformation out there from laymen that erroneously informs people that anyone who drives the car is insured. This is simply not true. Your will have to see your policy definitions for a covered driver or contact your insurance agent for clarification of when a driver is considered covered under your the terms of your auto insurance policy.

Insurance is purchased for the car, not the driver. Until thecar has been insured it cannot be driven by anyone.

Can auto insurance be cancelled after a car accident?

Yes, you can cancel a policy anytime you want to if you are the policyholder. I always suggest that you wait until the adjuster has a chance to look at the vehicle and determine if it is totaled or not before cancelling. Speak with your agent about this matter as well. In some states you need to cancel the tag before cancelling the insurance or you will incur a fine. If it is financed you will also need to consult the finance company as well.

What happens if you're involved in a auto accident and have no car insurance and no license?

Basically, you're out of luck. It's a crime to drive without a license. And it's almost certainly going to be treated as your fault, meaning nobody's going to pay to repair your car and you're going to have to pay to repair the other car. (In practice, the other guy's insurance will probably pay for his car ... and then they'll go after you to try to reclaim the losses. And they have very good attorneys.) You will end up paying the judgement for years to come. Probably is a lot cheaper to buy the insurance and get the license to begin with, or take the bus. Driving is not a right; it is a responsibility, but now you know that. It is also likely that you will be arrested and the car will be impounded. That will result in a criminal record and impound fees that will be your responsibility. If you ever get it together to get a valid license and a car you will find yourself in a high risk category and your insurance will be very expensive.

How many years is your licensed suspended if you do not have insurance on your car and you get in an accident?

This will depend on your State and what their regulations are regarding this matter. In Georgia, your license will remain suspended until you finish reimbursing the party you hit and their insurance company who may have paid the claim under their uninsured motorists coverage. They will allow you to make payments over time to get it paid off. I remember a 15 year old girl that drove her Mothers vehicle. Because, she wasn't a licensed driver, the insurance company denied coverage and did not pay the claim. She could not get her first license until the $5,000 damage she caused was paid back to the other parties insurance company. The Mom had insurance but did not notify the company of the drivers and let an unlicensed driver drive the car and she new she had no license as it was her daughter.

Will the insurance company pay for a vehicle that was driven by a suspended license driver that no other cars was involved?

Probably not. Insurance companies will always look for ways tonegate or lower the amount of claim damage they have to pay out ascompensation. Driving the vehicle without a license (or a suspended one) wouldconstitute a breech of the contract/ agreement and they would notpay. Although if the vehicle were stolen and then driven by anunlicensed party (and the incident reported to the authorities),they would have to pay.
