“The state of North Carolina does require proof of liability insurance in order to issue a standard driver’s license.
If you cannot get an insurance policy at this time, the NC DMV will issue a license with a “”fleet restriction.”” This means you can only drive a vehicle from places like a rental car company, not cars from friends or family members.
One option available to you is to buy a non owners car insurance policy. This type of policy can be issued to a driver without a vehicle, and due to the licensing requirements in North Carolina, many companies issue these policies to unlicensed drivers who are looking to obtain a license. “

Can I make a claim on my neighbor's home insurance for damage to my car?
"At my townhouse complex, people access the residential parking lot through backyard fence doors. Due to my parking spot's location, I have to park my car very close to the doors. Recently, on a windy day, my neighbor's unclosed door flew open and hit my car, causing a dent. Will my neighbor's homeowners policy cover this damage to my car? "

Does comprehensive insurance cover dents and scratches caused by a snow shovel?
It snows frequently where I live, and I often hire local kids to shovel my driveway. This morning, I found a few scratches and dings that could have only been caused by neighborhood kids shoveling the driveway. Will my comprehensive insurance cover this?
