Accident in borrowed car - G1 license

by Rosita
(Toronto)

Hi,

I am new in Canada and I have a G1 license + that my license from my home country is still valid a few more days. Today I borrowed a car from a friend and another friend was accompanying me. When I was driving out from a parking spot at a mall I hit someone behind me, and that car's side mirror holder was damaged. What will now happen? Will my friend, who owns the car, be held responsible so her insurance will go up? Will my license be affected, so I can't get a G2? What does it cost to replace a side mirror holder?

G1 and Accident in Borrowed Car


Hi Rosita
Your friend who loaned you the car will have higher rates as a result of this. It will also impact your record.

A side mirror holder is probably a few hundred dollars. Much less than the annual increase following an at fault claim.

Hope that helps.
