A: Did you have the insurance, or someone else? The policy holder should direct that question to the car insurance company or review the policy exclusions.

A: Your policy contract may address a suspended license scenario, and it may or may not be enforceable under these facts. You should speak with and consider hiring an attorney before making any statements.
