Can the state suspend your driver's license for an automobile accident if you were not driving?
Question Details: My sister's boyfriend was driving her uninsured car. He was then involved in a car accident and now the state is suspending her driver's license. She has agreed to pay for the damages but does not feel her license should be suspended. If she cannot drive, how can she pay for the damages?
Your sister is liable for the accident because she is the registered owner of the at-fault vehicle even though she wasn't driving. Her license is suspended because she didn't have insurance.
She should contact the Dept. of Motor Vehicles because if she provides proof of insurance, her license may be reinstated.
