Policies differ, so you should check with your agent or broker. If you have owned a vehicle and already have an auto insurance policy, that will generally cover your new automobile for a period of up to 30 days after you buy it. Once that 30-day period is up, you'll have to talk with your agent or company representative to insure that new vehicle.

What actions are typically taken by a lender if auto insurance is cancelled or expired and how long is the grace period?

Most finance/lease contracts allow the lender to either take the car back or purchase insurance and then charge the customer for it on their loan. The insurance the lender would buy is very expensive. As far as I know, there is not a grace period. Find out what car dealers don't want you to know at
