Deletion of a vehicle / cancellation is reported to the Commissioner of motor vehicles by all insurance companies. If you do not immediately return your registration marker plates you may receive one or more written inquiries from the DMV concerning whether or not the required minimum insurance has been maintained. You must respond to these inquiries.
If your insurance coverage lapses, the commissioner may suspend the registration(s) for the vehicle(s) covered under the policy. Your registration marker plates will be subject to confiscation. If you continue to operate the vehicle after the registration has been suspended you will be subject to penalties for operating motor vehicle with suspended registration
