The initial activity 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, tho’, 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

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. Response 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.

If you are speaking of collision insurance, the insurer will pay the actual cash value of the vehicle less the deductible. You may negotiate with the insurer over whether you, or it, keeps the salvage (the remains of the car), and its value. The policy may remain in force until the end of its term. If you get a fresh car to substitute the old, the existing policy may cover it. However, the premium may switch to account for differences inbetween the old and fresh vehicle that are material to the premium calculation. If you are speaking only of liability coverage and do not intend to substitute the car, you may want to convert to a “non-owner’s” policy. This provides coverage for you regardless of the car that you are driving.

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

How do you cancel car insurance and switched insurance?
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. However, it is significant, before you do this, to have suitable fresh insurance in place. You need this for self-protection, and also because all states require compliance with Financial Responsibility Laws. These laws require the maintenance of auto insurance, and inn the event of noncompliance, your license and tags can be suspended. Additionally, if the car is financed, the bank or finance company will require proof of insurance to protect its interest in the collateral. Failing receipt of the proof, it will obtain single party insurance on the collateral to protect its interest. This is usually much more costly than naming the financier as a loss payee on your collision coverage through your own insurer.
