What happens if a underage teenager gets pulled over with no adult in the car and the vehicle is uninsured ?
5 attorney answers
You definitely should not be driving without insurance or required adult supervision as a rule. You can get your license suspended or revoked, which is a costly and time-consuming prospect. Worse still is that the car can be impounded and even sold at auction by the government and you won't have much recourse to recover the vehicle. Even if you do not own the vehicle, it can be impounded, which will result in high fees and potential auction.
You get arrested, get ticketed for all of the above, have to appear in court and depending on the charges, you could be facing jail time.
Do not be sacred.
Just make sure you do not operate any uninsured motor vehicle without a valid driver's license under any circumstances. Easy.

What you are doing is foolish. I will add to the other answer that you may well be arrested, and you will not be able to get a license until you are 18.
NOT LEGAL ADVICE! HYPOTHETICAL ANSWERS ONLY. NO ATTORNEY CLIENT RELATIONSHIP CREATED.
Tickets, and the car gets towed and impounded. That is, if you don't kill somebody first.
