    More then likely you will not be able to get a business license until you are at least 19 and defiantly not insurance. The government does not recognize a person as an adult until 19 years of age therefore your signature will not be recognized on legal documents. You may need to get your parents to get a license and have you as an employee. It sucks but I think it will be the only legal way?

    You need to contact your city, county, and state to see if a license is necessary in your area, unless another member close to you chimes in with this info. The need for a license and requirements for such vary greatly by locale.

    I could ask my dad ( a police officer) but I am not sure if he knows.... I will have him ask around.
