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.”

I've been to the DMV in Waco numerous times to try to take my driving test, but the instructor refuses to let me take the test because my name isn't on the insurance, even though it's my mother's car. What should I do?
