Cancelling Insurance

Before you cancel your insurance on a vehicle, cancel your registration first to avoid penalties.  

We highly recommend you cancel your registration if your vehicle was:

  • Sold or traded-in
  • Registered in another state
  • Repossessed, stolen, wrecked, salvaged by an insurance company or junked
  • Stored or rendered inoperable

When you cancel your registration, you notify us, law enforcement and the Department of Revenue that your vehicle is not, and will not, be on the road. Cancelling your registration does not destroy your registration. It only renders it inactive.

You can reactivate your registration at any time, provided you have restored insurance and paid any outstanding taxes due.
