I'm still a few months away from getting my full license. Can I buy a car anyway?

“You can buy a car without a driver’s license as long as you are over 18 years old. However, you will most likely not be able to register the car until you have your license. This could cause issues with obtaining financing, but if you are paying for the car cash, then this shouldn’t be an issue.
As for insurance, drivers with a permit generally don’t need to be listed on an auto policy until they have their license. “

What should I do if a repair shop won't fix my car due to prior damage?
A year ago, I got into an accident and my insurance company paid to have my car repaired. My car was recently hit in a parking garage and the other driver is paying for the damages. But when I took my car to the shop, they said they wouldn't fix it due to the prior damage that wasn't fixed properly the first time. I had to sign a form stating I was driving an unsafe vehicle.

How can I get a new car when I still have a balance left on my loan from the old one?
I just was in an accident and my car was totaled. I didn't buy gap insurance, and since I never completed my photo inspection, I don't have collision coverage either! I still owe $9,000 on my loan and now I need a new car. Do I really have to pay the rest of the loan?
