I am at fault and I have no license, what happens?
- Civil – Because you are at fault for the accident, you are responsible to pay for the damages you caused. Not having a license doesn’t change things much in civil court.
- Criminal – You could have a problem. A police officer could write you a ticket at the scene or at a later date. Not having a license on your person, not having a license, and driving with a suspended or revoked license are various infractions and misdemeanor charges which can be brought against a driver without a license.
If I am not at fault and have no license.
- Civil – Not a civil court problem. You can still win a civil lawsuit and/or settle your insurance case with a good result.
- Criminal – You could have a problem. A police officer could write you a ticket a the scene or at a later time.
