It's hard to believe that I've had my driver's license for over 10 years now since I started driving on a learner's permit in 2012. Fast forward to 2014, I remember finding the first car I wanted. It was nothing special considering I was a new driver, but it was cheap reliable transportation.

Can you buy someone a car who doesn't have a license?

In short, yes you can. When I bought my 1995 Oldsmobile Cutlass Ciera (pictured above) for a whopping $500 (I know lot of money right?) It was just one month before I got my driver's license.

What are other reasons for buying a car without license?

Here are some examples according to WWLP22News:

  • You are planning on getting your license, and you see your dream car before you become a licensed driver.
  • You are gifting a car to a family member or a friend. In this case, you will have to put the car title in the person’s name to whom you are gifting the car.
  • You are a business owner and need a vehicle for business purposes.
  • You are unable to drive and purchase the vehicle for a caregiver or nanny.
  • A caregiver will be driving the car because you are unable to drive because of a disability.
  • You are a car collector or you are purchasing the car as an investment.
  • You are purchasing the car for a minor to practice on with a learner’s permit. Keep in mind that a licensed driver has to be in the car with a minor who has a learner’s permit.

In the end, it's best to have a driver's license in the long run since you can't legally register or sometimes insure a vehicle without a valid license in certain states. Not to mention, when you go to purchase a car, you can't test drive it yourself and will need a legally licensed driver to do that for you.
