No. He will get a ticket. His parents will have to pay all the expenses related to the accident. The parent's insurance probably won't pay anything unless it is covered under uninsured motorists section. I don't know about that.

Can you get auto insurance with just a learner's permit?

In most states, you can get auto insurance with just a learner's permit, but it will typically be added as a rider to a parent or guardian's existing auto insurance policy. This means that the primary policy holder (usually a parent or guardian) will be responsible for any damages or liability, but the insurance will also cover the person with the learner's permit while they are driving. When the person with the learner's permit is driving the car, they are considered a secondary driver under the parent's or guardian's policy, so typically the parent or guardian will have to list the learner driver as a secondary driver on the policy. It's important to check with the specific insurance company and state regulations as some insurers may have different requirements and rates for learners permit. It's also important to note that having a learner's permit does not automatically mean you can legally drive, you will also need to follow the rules and regulations of the state where you are applying for the permit, such as driving hours, ages, and passing a driving test.

Your auto insurance will cover your son while on a lerners permit. Check with your company as some require that he be listed as a driver and you must pay premium while others do not require that he be listed until he gets his regular license. If you insurance is telling you that there is no coverage while he is on the permit then you need a different insurance company.
