Can an insurance company raise your rates if you're not presently insured?

I sold my car November 2011 and cancelled my auto insurance. I'-ll be getting another car this April. I'-ve found a different insurance company with good rates. If they find out I'-m not presently insured can they raise my rates?

Each company sets their own rates based upon whatever factors they choice to use. All of the insurance companies do not mind meld with the other companies when new customers apply for coverage.
