Hello Men,

     Need some advice. A friend of mine in the states (Liscensed but under 18 yrs. of age) let a friend of theirs (someone who only had a permit) drive their vehicle. However, That driver wrecked the vehicle. The owner of the vehicle switched seats with the driver, and took the blame for the accident, and was issued a wreckless driving ticket.

    Legally, what would happen if they admitted/came clean to the police that it wasn't really them that caused the accident, and the one that was really driving decided to take the blame?

**NEED RESPONSES AS SOON AS POSSIBLE**

It depends on the state, but from what I understand, the one with the permit wouldn't be able to drive for a long while (Think of it as he was on probation and violated parole) and he would have to wait to be able to drive again. The owner might be hit with a violation of driving laws, but I don't think it would have impacted him much in comparison to a reckless driving ticket.

Thank you for the response. And Virginia.

Was there an insurance claim filed on a comprehensive coverage policy?  If so, they're probably guilty of insurance fraud.

If the uninsured, unlicensed driver remained accountable, the insurance company would undoubtedly deny any coverage since I am sure that the policy states that only licensed drivers will be covered.  Kids do stupid things though.  Despite their best efforts the truth will eventually come out and the fallout is always worse than if they had told the truth to begin with.
