No grace period for cancelled insurance
Q: Does the DMV offer a grace period from the date my current insurance is cancelled to the day I obtain new insurance?
A: No. Your vehicle must be insured if it's parked on a California street, road or highway. There are no exceptions. For more information, please visit http://www.dmv.ca.gov/vr/insurance.htm.
