No. A driver who drives a motor vehicle without having a valid driver’s license, and who is involved in an accident, is not automatically negligent. The issue of negligence will be determined by the circumstances of the accident, and if an unlicenced driver is injured in an accident that is caused by the negligence of another driver, the unlicenced driver will have a claim against the Road Accident Fund.
