    Default kick off and kick out

    Can you tell me if these two verbs are usually used with different meaning? What do they exactly mean?

    Example: If you don't stop speaking, I'll kick you out of the car!

    Can I use "kick off" in this sentence with the same meaning?

    ANother situation: If I am chatting and I got disconnected suddenly I know I can use "kick off" such as in this sentence:

    Sorry I got kicked off

    But can I use "kick out" in this sentence too?

    Thank you for your explanation.

    If you are in the car, you can be kicked out of it. If you are on the car (an unlikely situation, but possible) you can be kicked off of it.
    I have never heard kicked off or kicked out in connection with telephones.
