A lapse in your auto insurance is a time period for which you had or have no coverage. Either your policy expired and was not renewed on schedule meaning you missed your renewal payment or you missed a monthly payment and the policy was cancelled.

Keep making payments on a car you don't have and learn your lesson about not letting your insurance lapse.

There is no grace period for claims after a lapse in coverage. The moment your auto insurance "lapses" is the moment you have "No Coverage" from that moment forward you have no coverage for a claim until you get coverage again.

No. You are not covered in a lapse period. A period of lapse in coverage means " No Coverage ".

No, most insurance companies to not include credit history when deciding on a rate. They will look in to whether you've paid for insurance in the past or let it lapse however.

Im not sure when the fines is due. Depending on how long the lapse is, determines the fine. 0-10 days = $0 11-30 days = $50.00 and up from there

Insurance is purchased for the car, not the driver. Until the car has been insured it cannot be driven by anyone. Note that most states do allow a short grace period after you purchase a car in which it can be driven without insurance to let you purchase insurance and handle title/registration paperwork. This grace period does not apply to a car that you have either allowed the insurance to lapse or have removed its insurance. If you already have another car insured (which it appears you do) and wish to drive a car that is not currently insured, contact your insurance agent and have them temporarily transfer the policy to the other car.

He was uninsured for the flood damage because he allowed his policy to lapse. Loaning his car to his nephew was a major lapse in judgment.

It depends on the State that you live in. Certainly you cannot drive without insurance at all. You may have a statutory fine for having a registered vehicle without having insurance on the vehicle if there is a lapse in coverage. If you are a repeat offender then you may have a period of time where your license is suspended.

It depends (as always) on the company and the laws of the State, but usually no more than 60 days.

Automobile insurance, in most cases, does not cover mechanical breakdown. If your car is not worth repairing from a mechanical breakdown and you are able to replace it within a few weeks to a month I would suggest keeping your insurance policy active. This is to avoid having a lapse in insurance coverage which could result in higher insurance premiums when you get another car.AnswerYour car breaking down, and your car being totalled are 2 separate considerations. If your car mechanically breaks down, there is no coverage. If the car has been totaled in an accident, there may be coverage. I guess, more specific info is needed.

It varies state to state, but usually you have a 30 day grace period; meaning you can pay one month behind at a time. After being 60 days late (2 months), they cancel your policy. In states where car insurance is obligatory, you have to pay a lapse in insurance fine, which varies state to state. In extreme cases, they will come and remove the license plate from your car.
