Your recourse is to file a lawsuit for negligence against the registered owner and driver. You name both of them as defendants in the same lawsuit.
The amount of your damages (monetary compensation you are seeking in your lawsuit) for the property damage (cost of repairs to your car) will determine whether or not you can file the lawsuit in small claims court.
Upon prevailing in the case, you can also recover court costs which include the court filing fee and process server fee. A monetary judgment can be enforced with a wage garnishment.
