Insurance companies can non-renew or cancel your auto policy. If this happens to you, you'll need to shop for coverage with another company.
Non-renewed auto policies
If your insurance company doesn't renew your auto policy, it must give you 20 days advance notice before the non-renewal date takes effect. It must also provide you with a reason for its decision.
Cancelled auto policies
Your insurance company can cancel your auto policy if:
- You fail to pay the premium. However, the company must give you 10 days advance written notice.
- The Department of Licensing (www.dol.wa.gov) suspends or revokes your driver license or the driver license of someone else in your household.
- It's been 30 days or less since you bought the policy.
