A. If the department determines from information provided by an insurer or department records that a motor vehicle liability policy has been cancelled or has not been renewed as provided in section 28-4148 and pursuant to a schedule prescribed by the director, the department shall send the registered owner or lessee a notice of intent to suspend the license plate and registration of the vehicle.
B. On receiving evidence of financial responsibility as prescribed in this article, the department shall immediately delete the cancellation or nonrenewal from the record.
