Cancelling my insurance
(Hanover, Ontario, Canada)
I don't drive my car anymore.
Do I have to get rid of my car (sell) in order to cancel my insurance or can I own the vehicle, uninsured, but not drive it?
And, if I cancel my insurance what do I have to do if I want to be insured later but not have my record show a lapse of insurance (because I didn't own a car). Is there any way to put my insurance on vacation?
Not Driving and Insurance
You can cancel the insurance any time. Just be sure not to drive it anywhere without putting coverage back on.
To "get around" a break in coverage, ask a family member if you can be listed on their policy so that you have continuous insurance history.
Hope that helps!
My brother recently died and his car is insured. His spouse does not have a drivers licence. Will we be able to carry on with the insurance in his name and the title or is that illegal. The insurance is valid for 9 more months.
Deceased Brother's Car Insurance
You should call the auto insurance company and let them know. They will put the car into the "estate of" your brother and will want to list the drivers of the vehicle on the policy.
Some insurers might not like this situation. But it's always best to have the conversation.FREE Auto Insurance QuotesOther Pages of Interestcar insurance in Ontario Canada Car Insurance CanadaCar Insurance Quote CanadaAuto Insurance Questions
