Do I need car insurance to get a driver’s license, even if I don't have a car?

"I'll be applying for my driver's license soon. Do I need to buy car insurance to get my license?"

“No, you don’t need to have car insurance to get a driver’s license.
The process of applying for a driver’s license varies by state, age, and the type of the license you want to get. You’ll likely need your birth certificate, Social Security card, and proof of residence. Check with your local DMV to see what exactly they require. “
