Supreme Court, No 379/2021: Published in the magazine Applications of Civil Law and Civil Procedure, November 2021 issue, page 1348.

The driver who caused the accident is obliged to return to the insurance company the amount paid to the injured party for the car accident caused by the insured who was driving without a renewed driver’s license.

The renewal of the driving license, which expired due to reaching the age of 65, does not cover the intermediate time (from expiration to the renewal), during which the driver, who does not have the license, caused the accident. Causality. There must be no causal link between the lack of a legally required driving license and the damage caused by the driver of the insured vehicle, but the mere fact that he does not have, at the time of the accident, the one provided by law and for the category of the vehicle driving the driver’s license.
