I WAS IN­VOLVED IN AN AC­CI­DENT BUT I DON’T HAVE A LI­CENCE

DRUM - - Advice -

Some­one bumped into my car while I was wait­ing at a traf­fic light. I don’t have a driver’s li­cence.

Does this mean the other driver won’t be held li­able even though the ac­ci­dent was his fault? ANONY­MOUS, KHAYELIT­SHA

Driv­ing a ve­hi­cle on a pub­lic road without a valid driver’s li­cence is against the law, but this doesn’t mean the other driver can’t be held li­able for reck­less driv­ing. You can sue the other driver for dam­ages you suf­fered in your car.

How­ever, as the other driver, you might be fined by the traf­fic de­part­ment for driv­ing without a li­cence.
