Can I have a cosigner who doesn't have a valid driver's license?
I want to buy a new car, but need it financed. However, my only cosigner doesn't have a valid driver's license. Will this pose a problem?
“You should probably call the lender to get an answer. If the cosigner still has a valid form of identification (state ID or passport), you’ll probably be fine.
However, some lenders put the cosigner down as a driver on the account, and thus, they need a valid driver’s license. The only way to find out for sure is to ask your lender before you go in for closing.”

Is the car insurance company required to notify me that I need a SR22?
I got a ticket for not having car insurance. I went to court, paid the fine, got insurance, and thought it was all done. I got pulled over again and my license is suspended! I had no idea I needed an SR22. Why didn’t the insurance company tell me when I got the policy?
