Buying a Car Without a License
As long as you’re over 18, no driver’s license is typically necessary to purchase a vehicle; however, you may face more difficulty financing and insuring one. Furthermore, test driving won’t be possible since someone with a valid driver’s license would need to drive for you instead – making the entire process longer than necessary.
Overall, it’s wiser to wait to purchase your vehicle until after receiving your license; rental cars or borrowing one from friends and family may still suffice until then. But in certain situations, purchasing now without one could be necessary.

Once you find the vehicle that meets your needs, the next step will be securing insurance before finalizing a loan and registering it. When shopping for insurance providers that will accept drivers without licenses (most lenders require full coverage when financing cars), as well as valid forms of identification in some states – be sure to do your research!
