Many people ask us: Can I buy a car in Jacksonville without a Driver’s License? Yes, it is possible to purchase a vehicle without a driver's license. Many people will tell you that it can't be done, but here at Lejeune Honda, we can sometimes help buyers find their perfect vehicle, even when they didn't have a valid driver's license.
Here in North Carolina, the NC Department of Motor Vehicles allows car dealers like us to sell a Honda to someone without a license as a way to provide transportation to the elderly or handicapped. A person may need to purchase a car but might not be the person driving it. This is why the law was changed in NC, to allow people who cannot drive to purchase a car to be used by the person that will be driving them.
This is a unique situation for most buyers and things can get confusing quickly. If you have questions, call us at (910) 728-4618 or contact us below! You can also take a look at our selection of new and pre-owned models to find your perfect ride. Sedan, crossover, or truck, we have a wide range of options to fit your driving needs and budget. Considering trading in your old vehicle for a new ride? Visit our online trade evaluator, powered by KBB and find out the market value of your car.
Keep in mind, there are a few items you'll need to bring with you if purchasing a vehicle without a license. These include a valid photo ID, proof of income, proof of address, and information about any current vehicle loans. Don't forget to obtain your signed and notarized vehicle title, odometer disclosure statement, damage disclosure statement, and bill of sale when you purchase your vehicle.
While it is possible for you to purchase a vehicle without a driver's license, remember that without one, you can't get automobile insurance and therefore cannot legally drive. Another thing you'll need a license for? Registering your vehicle with the DMV. Without a valid driver's license, you won't be able to get license plates or potentially purchase insurance for your vehicle.
If you want to know how a certain vehicle drives on the road, a friend, relative, or caretaker can come take the model you have your eye on for a test drive. We'll be happy to let you get behind the wheel once you obtain a valid driver's license.
