If he is stopped and arrested, your car will be impounded and you may or may not be able to have it released from police impound. Your boyfriend will also face jail time for driving without a license. If your boyfriend is involved in an accident, your insurance company may not pay for the damages or defend you and him in any potential lawsuit, since you allowed an unlicensed driver to drive your car.

He can flee from police because he is too scared to go back to jail. He can crash. He can injure someone. Your insurance can go up. He can try and minimize his responsibility by exclaiming that you knew he did not have a license. You can be charged. You can find out that you are pregnant after you are sitting in jail. Shall I go on? If you want to play the game, do not cry when you get burned.

He can be charged with driving without a license.I doubt you would have any criminal liability, but if he should be involved in an accident, you could be in for a big law suit against you, especially if your insurance does not cover him, or any unlicensed driver, for that matter.

You should never let anyone drive your car no matter what the circumstances. If you know he does not have a license you can be charged with facilitating the crime of Aggravated Unauthorized Operation or Driving Without a License. You are also liable for all the tickets, accidents, injuries, or damages that result from his operation of your vehicle. People who do not own a car and do not have the money or credit to rent a car are the most likely people to be irresponsible and either drive drunk, get into an accident, or commit some traffic offense. If you want to help them out then rent them a car and pay for the insurance so that you are not responsible for their actions.

Reza Athari & Associates, PLLC | Seth L. Reszko
I would state that obviously your boyfriend can be ticketed for driving without a license. If your boyfriend gets into a car accident, and you were found negligent in letting him drive your car you can be sued for any damages sustained by your boyfriend. I don't know about whether your insurance will cover your boyfriend.

He will be charged with driving without a license. If, while driving, he is involved in an accident, or hurts someone, or damages property, they are going to sue you because you owned the car and you let him drive it. Bottom line: what you are doing is very stupid.
