Do you need a driver's license to buy a car?

I am in the process of getting my license, but in the mean time, I would like to buy a car with my tax return check. Can you legally buy a car without a license?


You can, just have someone with a license drive it off the lot, or leave it at the dealer until you get your license

Depends where you are. In most or all US states you can buy a car without a license, but may need a license and proof of insurance to register your vehicle with the Dept of Motor Vehicles.
In California, you can buy a car, not have a drivers license or car insurance, and the DMV will give you vehicle registration.

Yes, you can buy and own a car without a license.

The license is to drive the car.

If you are underage (not all States have the same age requirement) you can not sign a contract. So I would assume the answer is no, since even paying cash you sign a purchase order and a purchase order is a contract.

Yes you can - dont have to have a license to own a car just to drive it.

You'll just have to get someone to drive it home for you. Why not wait until you get your license and let your tax money earn some interest for you until then...

yes..well u can in the uk.

No, only to drive it, and perhaps to get insurance and tags on it, depending on the rules where you are. But you certainly can buy it. I'd have it towed to your house though rather than take the chance of someone driving it without insurance.
