If I have a vehicle that I am still paying for but I want to park it for the winter, do I still have to have it insured?

Or insured with full coverage?

You may be able to with some insurance but keep in mind you will not be able to drive it anywhere. You should check with your insurance company to see if the company offers such a coverage plan (park it temporarily for the winter) if you still have a loan on it. If your motor vehicle lender requires full coverage insurance to protect its security, you will not be able to have insurance lapse.
