The first step you should take is to contact your insurance agency. Call your agency and let them know you want to end your coverage and when you want to do this. Do not let your coverage end without telling your insurance. If your policy goes without payment they could report this to the credit agencies.
Second, you should follow you insurance agencies lead on the cancellation. Every agency does cancellations differently, so find out how yours does them. Agencies have their own way of doing cancellations so just follow their lead on doing so.
Next you can ask for a refund. You can do this if there is a death in the family. An example would be if someone dies and there is a few months left on the policy. You can ask the agency if they would refund the rest of the money left on the policy.
Finally you should contact the Department of Motor Vehicles, also known as the DMV. This all depends on what state you live. If you sell your vehicle you may also want to turn in your license plate and registration tag. Just call your local DMV and see what the procedures are.
