Cancellations & Revocations

If you have received an insurance cancellation notice, you will need to provide one of the following proofs of compliance by fax, mail, or by clicking on the Contact Us link at the bottom of the page:


  • Proof of Insurance with a company authorized to write in Louisiana
  • Cancel the plate online or surrender by mail
  • Proof of the date the vehicle was disposed by submitting one of the following containing the VIN:
    • Bill of Sale/Trade-in Documents/Lease Return
    • Total Loss Statement from the Insurance Company
    • Proof of Repossession from the Lien Holder
    • Junked or Salvage Receipt
    • Out-of-State Registration

If the vehicle is not insured or disposed of timely, then you will also owe a fee. Fees are based on the number of days without insurance. 


Fee Amounts

Fees are based on the number of days without insurance.

  • 2-30 days: $125
  • 31-90 days: $275
  • 91 days and above: $525
  • If the debt is delinquent and transferred to the Office of Debt Recovery (ODR) the fee is $656.25

Insurance cancellation fees do have a cap of $850.00 plus a $25.00 administrative fee per cancellation when paid on the same day. If you are 65 years of age or older, the cap is decreased to $250.00. However, the cap does NOT apply to any insurance cancellations that have been transferred to ODR.

Submittal of Payment

Fees may be paid over the phone with a debit or credit card or by mail with a money order, certified funds, or cashier’s check.
