Auto Insurance

Can you get non-driving auto insurance if you are keeping your car but will not be driving it for 6 months to a year?

Yes. Some carriers sell this type of coverage more on a seasonal basis (for instance, you park your car at a summer residence, don't use it for nine months out of the year, but still need coverage).

Contact your agent and/or carrier directly to find out more information. The premium for this type of coverage should be relatively low, since the vehicle's not in use, but you'll want to be very clear with your carrier about when you'll be using the car again. If you forget, and use the car during its "off" time, you might not have coverage.

I don't know what the fine is in a particular jurisdiction but I can tell you this. The fine for driving without insurance will be far more than six months premium of the insurance that you were required to carry.

Your car insurance will about double. Quit driving like an idiot, and stop getting tickets, or you'll lose even more money to insurance.

I am not sure about California itself but of the states I do no about the penalty is always more than six months of insurance would have cost the person had they purchased the liability insurance.

If you have a vehicle that you will be driving you will need to have insurance on it no matter what. You will not need any special insurance. Your regular insurance will cover you while you are out of state.

If you get twelve points on your driving record in a two year period your driving privileges can be suspended for up to six months. This can make it difficult, but not impossible to get insurance. It will most likely raise the cost though.
