Am I legally obligated to have car insurance just because I possess a driver's license?
I have a driver's license, but I don't own a car and I don't plan on owning or driving a car anytime soon. I just use my license as ID. Do I need car insurance?

Thanks for your question! You’re not legally obligated to have insurance if you only have a driver’s license. You can have a policy cover you if you don’t have a vehicle, but it’s not required.

If my Nissan 370Z was hit by another motorist, will their insurance company give me the check or give it to the repair shop?
I was in an accident in my Nissan 370Z when I was hit by a driver not paying attention. It did extensive damage to my vehicle. However, I want to get some estimates rather than use the other driver's repair shop. I currently own the vehicle. Will their insurance give me the check so I can choose where it's fixed?

Was getting this non owners car insurance policy really a good idea?
I live in Seattle and rent cars frequently. Rather than getting the rental car coverage, I bought a non owners policy with Progressive. It meets all the state liability requirements, but now I have buyer's remorse. Did I get enough coverage?
