Hi dheckler587,

No, you don't have to have insurance to get a New York State driver license.

The New York State Department of Motor Vehicles web page on Driver
License and Non-driver Photo ID makes no mention of any such
requirement.  If there were such a requirement, it would certainly be
listed on that page.

You do have to have liability insurance to register a car in New York
State, though.

The New York State Insurance Department page on Required Auto
Insurance in their 2005 Consumer Guide to Automobile Insurance also
mentions insurance only as a requirement for registering a vehicle,
not for getting a driver license.

There are no comments at this time.
