Can I finance a car after losing my driver's license?
I lost my driver's license, but I want to buy a car so it's ready to go when I get my license back in 90 days. Can I finance a car without a license?

“There are no laws regarding a lender’s ability to extend a car loan to a person without a driver’s license. As long as you aren’t the person driving the car at present, there’s nothing wrong with that.
Your real problem will be getting auto insurance without a license. Most insurers won’t provide insurance without a license, and you can’t finance a car without insurance. If you do find an insurer, you’re going to need full coverage and your rates are going to be expensive.”

Why would someone have property damage liability and collision coverage in a no-fault state?
It seems redundant to have both coverages since they are covering the same things on your own vehicle.

"My local dealer has a low-mileage Altima for sale for $12,000. I have about $5,000 saved up. I could definitely afford a $300-per-month car payment, but I only work a few days a week and that would be most of my monthly income. Could I get this car loan? Or do I have other options?"
