On January 1, 1995, new laws were enacted relating to unlicensed drivers in California. Section 14602.6 VC authorizes law enforcement to tow and impound a vehicle for 30 days when driven by unlicensed, suspended, or revoked drivers. This means if you or someone who is driving your vehicle does not have a valid license and is stopped by law enforcement officers for any reason, your vehicle will be towed and impounded for thirty (30) days.
If it's your vehicle, it's your responsibility. Under section 14604 VC, the owner of a vehicle has a duty to ensure the person driving their vehicle possesses a valid license. If you allow or permit anyone, including your spouse, child, friend or relative to drive your vehicle and that person does not have a valid license, you will be responsible for towing and storage fees. You will not have access to your vehicle for 30 days.
If the vehicle impounded pursuant to section 14602.6(a) of the California Vehicle Code, the vehicle will be held in impound for a period of 30 days, beginning on the date in which the vehicle was impounded.
