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.

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 stir 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.

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.
