I am traveling to the usa, and my friend own's a truck over there, if i were to drive it without insurence what would be likley to happen, as i am a british citizen would it be likley that i would be deported? Or the car be towed, because i dont want to risk loosing him his truck. I have a full U.K drivers licence which i know will be valid to drive on for 1 year. It's in a rural area and i would only be travling less than a mile to the store, passing very little trafic

If he has insurance then you would be covered.

If he doesn't have insurance, help him pay for some, for a 6 month or one year policy, making only the first payment (unless you're staying longer than a month). When you leave cancel it.

If you were to try to buy ins in your name, you'd have to show residence and get a local license and put the truck in your name. You can usually drive someone else's car and be covered by their policy.

They will not deport a British citizen (or anyone) just for driving without insurance.
'Just' might be an important word. Say you hit a school bus and it catches fire with 80 small children on board and they think you're associated with some terrorist organization...

As long as your friend has a standard carrier, anyone he gives permisson to drive truck is covered.
