Should I pay for accidentally damaging my driving instructor's car?

I was operating my driving instructor's car when I accidentally drove over the curb and hit a light pole. The car suffered some minor damage and there were no injuries. My instructor said he doesn't have full-coverage insurance and he wants me to pay for repairs. Should I pay?

Since you were driving the vehicle at the time of the accident, you’re responsible for the accident. And since the vehicle isn’t fully covered, you’re responsible for paying for the damages.
