How can I get car insurance in North Carolina if my driver's license is expired?

I'm moving into a house with several roommates. They all have cars, and they said they would let me borrow one of theirs if I need it. Because I didn't have a car in the past, I let my NC license expire. But now to get a new license, I need an insurance policy with my name on it. What do I do?

“You have one of two options—you need to get your name listed on a roommate’s policy or you can purchase your own non owners car insurance. Either way, all the DMV in North Carolina needs to see is your name on a policy for you to take a driving test.
Once you pass the driving test and get a license, you can either keep the non owners policy or stay on your roommate’s policy.”
