If I am an excluded driver and I backed into a parked car within a private property.I exchanged information with the owner. However I was not aware that I was an excluded driver. How should I go about resolving the matter? Should I contact the owner of the vehicle I hit or wait for them to contact me? This all happened in california and the damage is very minor just a dent by the front driver's side.

Hello and welcome to JustAnswer.

Because you're excluded the insurance company will not cover the damage. You should contact the other person and offer to pay for damage on your own. You do not want the other driver to report you drove without insurance.

I hope that I have answered your question. Please let me know if you have more questions or need more information.

Hello, I noticed that you gave my answer a poor rating. May I ask why? Was there additional information that needed? Or did I misunderstand your question?

I understood your question as being whether you should contact the other driver. I indicated that you should contact the other driver. Perhaps I misunderstood. I assumed the accident was your fault - perhaps it wasn't. If it was the other driver's fault you should still contact them and inquire about them compensating you for the damages.

Please let me know what additional assistance you need.

Well I was just wondering if I decided not to contact them and waited for them to contact me. Will there be any repercussions?

Sandra,

Thank you for your additional question. I wish you had asked it prior to giving me a poor rating.

Failing to contact them may result in them calling the police rather than you. If the police investigate and learn that you were operating a vehicle that you were not insured to operate that can result in you having your license suspended. It could also result in higher insurance rates in the future. Making it as easy as possible for them to have their vehicle repaired is that best way to avoid having them involve law enforcement.

Please let me know if you have any additional questions or if you need more information. If I have answered your question please consider giving my answer a positive rating (3 or more stars).

It worked great. I had the facts and I presented them to my ex-landlord and she folded and returned my deposit. The 50 bucks I spent with you solved my problem.
