One of the most common questions we get at our office is whether or not you can insure a car without a license in Massachusetts. The answer, unfortunately, is that it’s not as easy as you might think. Before we get into the nitty-gritty details, let’s take a step back and discuss what an insurance policy is. In short, an insurance policy is a contract between you and an insurance company that promises to cover financial losses in the event of an accident. Now that you understand the basics, it’s time to talk about what happens if you don’t have a license to drive. Under Massachusetts law, car insurance companies are allowed to refuse to offer coverage to drivers who lack a valid driver’s license. What this means for you is that if you get into an accident while driving without a license, you may not be able to obtain financial compensation from your insurance company. So if you’re ever in doubt about whether or not you can insure your car without a license in Massachusetts, reach out to our office for help. We can guide you through the process and make sure that your policy is up-to-date and covers all your bases.
What is a driver’s license?
A driver’s license is a identification card issued by the government to drivers of motor vehicles in many countries. A driver’s license does not necessarily mean that a person is a qualified driver. In many countries, a driver’s license is also required to operate a motorcycle, bus, or truck. In other countries, such as the United States, a driver’s license is only required to operate a car.
Some countries, such as the United States, issue driver’s licenses with photographs on them. Other countries, such as Canada, issue driver’s licenses without photographs. A driver’s license is usually valid for one year and can be renewed if the person has not been convicted of a traffic violation within the past year.
