As far as your insurer is worried, you may cancel your policy at any time.
If your vehicle is being financed, however, your lender requires that you maintain coverage for physical harm to the vehicle at all times. Many lenders will require you to instantaneously pay off a vehicle that has been impounded.
While your state has minimum requirements for liability coverage, often you can give up your registration or submit a non-use affidavit and drop your liability coverage for an out-of-use vehicle.
If a driver who just recently cancelled their insurance gets into an accident do they have any coverage at all?
Nope, I let my insurance lapse for Five hours and was involved in a hit and run accident where the other dude took off. Since they never found him, and I technically didnt have coverage at the time, the insurance agency didnt pay for it. I had to still make payments on a car I couldn’t driver. This is a real agony to deal with if this happens to you. On the other arm, sometimes a carrier will permit a 24 hr grace period, even a Ten day grace period where they would honor your coverage if you renewed your policy. My advise : DO NOT go thru Safe Auto.

When your car is repossessed when do you cancel your insurance coverage?
The same day that you determine you aren’t getting it back. It would be wise to wait until then because if the bank repo’d it to kinda just remind you that being Three payments behind isn’t a good thing, you might get it back and then you don’t have to go through the entire insurance application process again. ReactionYeah for sure do not cancel anything until it is no longer in your name either. I’d wait until the title transfer is finish as well. ReactionYou should cancel your insurance the moment your car is repossessed.The moment the car is hooked up(as the above two repo morons will tell you)it is no longer your car.So if you would like to cover someone elses vehicle with your insurance you go right ahead but you are wasting your money and your insurance coverage.Dishonest repo guys(like the above two scumbags) want you to keep the insurance on the vehicle so if they harm the car or steal stuff from it it will go on your insurance. Reaction Amendment: Never cancel an insurance policy until you have a fresh policy in place. If you do it will cost you more in the long run. Insurance companies are looking for loyalty and longevity without lapse in coverage. Sometimes you can possibly suspend, cancel or reduce coverage but never cancel it. The moment the vehicle is repossessed does not release you from the contract agreement. Read it. In most cases until the vehicle is transferred out of your name via the title of ownership, you must maintain physical harm coverage or they can force place it and take the premium out of the proceeds. Reduce to minimum but don’t cancel it.

How much car insurance coverage do you need?
each state has a minimum you must carry, but these are min. for example the state i live in only requires 10k for property harm…that’s not almost enough..you can’t hardly get a good used car for 10k anymore…this min. would mean : you are at fault and the harm you caused to the other vehicle (or vehicles/fences etc..all harm caused from one accident to the property of others) was say 15k (not uncommon), your policy would/could only pay 10k and now you are left with 5k to pay… so you need to review it cautiously, i personally have 50k on property harm, and 100/300k on bodily injury and uninsured motorist…what both of those coverages are: 100k (limit) per person and 300k per accident for any injuries i cause (under the bodily injury coverage) and same for uninsured motorist..that coverage pays for the injuries caused by an uninsured motorist…….clear as mud right?
If my car is impounded will my insurance pay anything to get it out?
Maybe, is it in the impound yard due to an accident, and you have collision coverage? Or was it impounded due to being parked in the wrong place? If the impound was due to a covered loss they should cover it. If not, no they will not. Insurance company will pay fees associated with impound for car accident if there is collision coverage, theft or fire if the car has comprehensive coverage and as the above reaction states, a covered loss. Anything other than that, you are on your own. Impounds charge an exorbitant rate as well, commonly set by cities an states. Rates fro $30-$100 per day, plus the tow. That is why insurance companies want these vehicles with covered losses out of the impounds and to shops or if possible total loss to auto auctions where they are not getting hit these fees. The reason I mention the money, is that if you do not have a covered loss, you need to get the vehicle out instantaneously because the money adds up quickly. Some impounds will store the car for 30 days before being disposed of, but even at $30 per day, it starts getting too expensive to retrieve the car. Years ago, Chicago impounds were disposing of vehicles in 10-14 days, and trust me when I say (I know from practice towing these vehicles out) the impound is not the friendliest place to do business.

Further, if you are involved in a collision that is your fault and do not have liability insurance, you may be personally liable for the other party(ies) damages. In turn, if you are sued for those damages and a judgment is entered against you, the Financial Responsibility Laws of most states dictate that your license will be suspended until payment of the damages is arranged. You are generally also required to obtain an SR-22 which is a type of high risk liability insurance and to maintain it for a stated period of time provided by statute.

Where and how do you get car insurance if a car insurance company cancels you?
The initial act that may occur to the consumer is merely to go to another insurer. However, that may be am overly simplistic treatment. Most states have statutes (laws) that delineate the circumstances under which an auto insurer may decline to renew (“drop”) an existing insured. One of these includes that the insurer makes a business decision to no longer write insurance in the state. However, terminating policies for that reason is a fairly lengthy process and requires regulatory approval. Most states have consumer protection laws as part of their Insurance Codes that define and delimit the types of offenses for which an insured may be canceled (if found guilty). More likely, at least for a very first offense, the result will be a premium increase. Additionally, the circumstances under which an insured may be “dropped” must be part of the underwriting guidelines that the insured files and must get approved as part of it application to transact insurance business in the state. Admittedly, however, some states are more/less consumer friendly than others. It is significant that the person whose insurance has been canceled budge quickly to substitute it. This is because motor vehicle authorities track cancellations and, if due to a cancellation, the persons is no longer in compliance with the state’s Financial Responsibility Law which requires the maintenance of auto insurance, his/her license/tags may be suspended until the insurance is substituted. For substituting you can check a comparisson site like this one where you can get free quotes from different companies

Liability covers injury or harm to property if the renter or covered driver is at fault in an accident while driving rental car.

Harm waiver is not insurance and all three can be voided if the renter or driver are in disturbance of rental company policies.

Financial ResponsibilityYes. In the interest of Public Safety and enforcement of our Financial responsibility to others when at fault in a Motor Vehicle accident, most if not all of the United States have by now enacted law that permits the state to impound vehicles found to be operated by uninsured drivers on public roads. ReactionMaybe—-The key words to the reaction above are: “found to be operated by uninsured drivers on public roads.” In Texas the cops have plate readers that can detect if the car has insurance as they pass them on the roads. In Wisconsin (one of the last states for this requirement), something has to happen. You are pulled over with no proof of insurance and some other disturbance. Car can be impounded for no insurance however for some other occurrence that caused the cop to believe it was uninsured.

There is no set response here. Were there other mitigating factors that spurred you question, like driving under revocation or suspension? I have very uncommonly seen where the car was impounded just because proof of insurance was not shown. There is usually more to it than not just having insurance. Was there an accident involved? Unlike the very first person that answered your question, I am a little more cynical and find there were other factors involve that did not get mentioned.

Insurance can be canceled in a duo of ways. The easiest is to refrain from paying the next premium whereupon the policy will cancel for lack of payment of premium.

You need this for self-protection, and also because all states require compliance with Financial Responsibility Laws.
