Most finance/lease contracts allow the lender to either take the car back or purchase insurance and then charge the customer for it on their loan. The insurance the lender would buy is very expensive.

As far as I know, there is not a grace period.

How much is it when your licence plate is expired and you r insurance have been cancelled?

You'd need to be more specific. An expired plate ticket where I live is about $80; if you're driving on expired plates and your insurance has been cancelled, I think that's an automatic impound, which means the fine from the ticket is likely to be the least of your worries.

Yes. The reason being is insurance covers the car not the person. So whether that person chooses to drive around with an expired license or an expired plate sticker is on them.

If you have a current insurance policy and are in a car accident, but have an expired license, it is up to the insurance company if they will pay the claim or not. It could be in their clause not to, if a person does not have a valid drivers license, especially if you are the one at fault.

Most insurance companies will specify that the driver must be 'road legal'. That means a valid driving licence for the vehicle must be held, an expired licence is not a 'valid' licence.

Can a person buy an auto policy with an expired registration?

Usually you can. The reason for this is that the insurance company generally has not access to know if the tag is valid or not. Insurance companies in Georgia do not ask for a tag number but on the vehicle identification number. The insurance company here reports to the State when a vehicle is insured or cancelled but probably does not have access to those records themselves. The company is interested in the drivers license history and claims history which they do have access to.

What is you have an accident and realized that your registration had expired what will happen in Massachusetts?

What will happen if you rear ended someone on the way to pay your insurance that had expired and the person who was hit said it was OK but wanted to exchange information?

Most insurance expires at 12:01 in the morning of the day it expires. If you are involved in an accident when your policy is expired, typically there is no coverage for the accident. It is safe to exchange information in case injuries are found later, or the insurance company can determine after the fact if there is coverage afforded or not. Making an immediate payment could reinstate coverage for the accident. Your policy could be cancelled and you would have a hard time getting insurance for a decent rate if this guy reports the accident. Hope that he doesn't and pay out of pocket if he needs a repair. You could also get a citation for driving without insurance so a lot of scary things could happen and it all depends on what this other guy does. I would follow up with him to be sure everything really is okay and work this out off the record.
