I am involved in car accident with a boy age under age 16 who rode a motorcycle without a valid driving licence.

I can't claim my car insurance because he doesn't have a driving license.

How can I get my compensation, can I claim the compensation against him but he is a minor? Or can I get the compensation from the parent or the owner of the motorcycle?

Perhaps,  you can claim the insurance. The minor not having the driving license is another affair. However, you can sue his/her parents so far as I know. Parents can be held responsible to pay for injuries and property damage caused by their child.

Thanks.

It depends on who is at fault and how many vehicles is involved. Or both parties are equally negligent.

Lets assume the minor who has no driving license is at fault. 
The question is, can he (200105) claim the insurance or not?

No assumptions. Police reports can be doctored by any party who know how to.

The insurance is on the damages of the vehicles not human bodily damages.

What happens if there is a runaway car/van/lorry without driver? No driver no claims? Act of God?

It is up to the police to charge the juvenile and the owner of the motorcycle.

So, if stolen bike, how? Claim from your own insurance la..

Parents are held responsible for a minor's occurrence.
