My friend want me to register his car..

So he can drive it. What would happen if he got pulled over or whatever. It doesn't sound like a great idea. What do you think?

    The only reason he wants you to register it is because he can't for whatever reason. Not something you should involve yourself with. You are liable for any damage that car does. If he goes out and sideswipes 15 cars, you are liable to pay the damages if your name is on the registration. If he goes out and gets 100 parking tickets, you are liable to pay them off. ANYTHING he does with that car, you are responsible for if you register it. BAD BAD BAD idea!

  • Why can't your friend register his own car? Not something I woud do for anyone I know. I'm not sure what all the legal repercussions could be but I wouldn't take the chance.

  • If he gets into an accident and the car is in YOUR name YOUR screwed! YOUR responsible for any and ALL damage the car does. DONT register it for him!!

  • yeah, it sounds pretty sketchy. I've never even thought twice about registering my own vehicle...i don't know why he wouldn't do it himself unless there is something wrong. And vbruno is WILL be responsible for any and all actions with that car. It could lead to some serious issues later.

  • Not a good idea at all. I wouldn't want to be responsible for a car that someone else was driving.

  • Not a good idea. Loaning your name for someone or co-signing anything for anyone is ALWAYS A BAD IDEA.

  • no way would i do this at all! Has he told you why? to me it wouldn't matter why but maybe there has to be a legal reason he can't do it himself maybe he don't have insurance or a DL I would say no way.
