An individual may legally purchase a new or used car from a dealer or private seller without a driver's license. The purchase may be made with cash, check, credit, or any other medium agreed upon by the buyer and seller. A Bill of Sale documenting the sale and a title signed by the car's owner transferring all rights of ownership to the buyer are the only requirements in most states. Buyers should contact the local Department of Motor Vehicles to inquire about state-specific requirements.
