If an uninsured, unlicensed driver gets in an automobile accident, can the owner of the vehicle lose their license?

Asked over 1 year ago - Shinnston, WV

in the state of WV, what is the law on that? the accident has already been filed with the insurance company for the vehicles involved in the accident. it was a minor accident and there were no injuries. but other than the cost for damages on the vehicles, can the owner of the vehicle face anymore repercussions? also, the owner of the vehicle was not aware that the driver did not have a license.
