While driving without a license is against the law, it is a far too common practice throughout California. The issue with unlicensed drivers is that there is a reason that they don’t have a license - whether it be lack of experience or problem driving records - these drivers can cause danger on the road.
The AAA Foundation for Traffic Safety reports that almost 20% of car crashes that resulted in deaths involved drivers that were unlicensed or who had invalid licenses. Nearly 7% of these drivers had suspended or revoked licenses, 1% had expired licenses, and 5% never had a license.
Drivers without a license are also likely to not have insurance or other forms of economic assets to compensate for the costs of property damage and injuries that result from an accident. However, there are solutions to recover the losses experienced from a car accident.
