Q: I was in a small wreck just a fender bender a mile from my house, I had no license (Never had them) and no insurance I
Was driving down to our field (a mile and half from my house) our neighborhood hit my car he wasn’t paying attention to the road. I got a ticket for no license and no insurance I did have a 28 year old in the car with me, he told me he didn’t see any reason to arrest me since I was honest and respectful towards him. I now have my learners permit and I now have non-owners car insurance plus insurance on the car... If I go to could early could this be dismissed??? I have NEVER been in any kind of trouble, never had any tickets of any kind until now.
A: If the accident was the other driver's fault then the fact you didn't have a license is likely not admissible on fault. Who is fault is determined by what happened in the accident. As to the ticket- It is good that you now have your learner's permit and insurance. The fact that you have these and that the accident wasn't your fault will be important - not only as to keeping the license you are about to get- but also as a factor for the Court to consider on your ticket. The Court may dismiss- but the Court could also fine you. Take it up with the Court and see what the Judge does- You best bet would be talk to a lawyer in your county where the case is- and have the lawyer deal with it.

I agree with Mr. Wright, who has thoroughly addressed the issues facing you here. I'd add a note to keep an eye on your mailbox for correspondence from the other side should they decide to commence a claim against you. I hope that does not happen, but if it does, a prompt response by you or an attorney could contribute to the other side handling any such claims through their uninsured motorist coverage, instead of the alternative, where no response angers the claimant and the matter snowballs into legal action. Good luck
