If your vehicle registration has already been suspended by the California Department of Motor Vehicles and you have purchased a California Low Cost Auto Insurance Policy through our agency, please go to step 1 below.
If your vehicle registration hasn't been suspended, then you will only see the Submit Insurance Information button after you submit the vehicle information, but you won't be able to submit this online. In this situation, if your registration is scheduled to suspend within the next 45 days, we recommend you notify us and we will manually submit proof of insurance, as you will not be able to do this through the California Department of Motor Vehicles website.
1) Visit the Vehicle Registration Suspensions and Insurance Program page on the California Department of Motor Vehicles website. Click Here
2) Click on the Insurance Inquiry button.
3) Enter the License Plate Number (required)*
4) Enter one of the following
Personal Identification Number (PIN)
Last 5 digits of Vehicle Identification Number (VIN)
5) Click on the Submit button
6) Click on the Pay Reinstatement Fee button.
DO NOT click on the Submit Insurance Information button.
You will be required to pay the $14 reinstatement fee, before we can report to the California Department of Motor Vehicles that you purchased a California Low Cost Auto Insurance policy through our agency.
7) Select one of the Payment Options (E-Check Payment, Credit/ATM/Debit Card) and then enter your payment information.
8) Click on the Submit button.
9) Confirm the payment information and if everything is accurate, click on the Submit button to process the payment.
10) On the Reinstatement Payment Result screen, enter your email address to send the confirmation of the payment and click on the Send Email Confirmation button.
IMPORTANT NOTICE: You will not be able to Submit Insurance Information, as you won't currently have a NAIC (National Association Insurance Commissioner Number) listed on the California Low Cost Auto Insurance temporary identification card. Once your California Low Cost Auto Insurance policy has been assigned to an insurance company, that company will electronically transmit the proof of insurance to the California Department of Motor Vehicles and the identification card you receive in the mail (note: please allow up to 45 days) will have listed the NAIC number, along with your policy number. In the meantime, we can manually report your proof of insurance to the California Department of Motor Vehicles, following the reinstatement fee of $14 has been paid.
Please forward us a copy of the confirmation email to email@example.com and we will proceed with manually reporting the proof of insurance to the California Department of Motor Vehicles. We will email you confirmation, once this has been done.
DISCLAIMER: DMV field office and call center personnel cannot process paperwork to clear vehicle registration insurance suspensions. You understand that the vehicle cannot legally be operated until the registration is reinstated; otherwise, if the vehicle is driven or parked on a California street, road, or highway while the registration is suspended, you will be subject to citation. You understand that if your California Low Cost Auto Insurance Application is returned/rejected, then this notice to DMV becomes void and you could be subject to being cited, having your vehicle impounded, and personally liable for damages if you are involved in a collision.
