How Does Car Insurance Work?

Whether you lease, finance, or own your car, it is mandatory to have car insurance. However, in order to be eligible for car insurance, certain conditions and restrictions apply.

To begin with, you (and all drivers you wish to include in the policy) must have a valid driver's license and be a resident of Canada. Next, insurance companies will look at your prior driving record to determine eligibility and rates. However, rates will vary depending on whether you are looking for a new insurance policy altogether or if you wish to renew an existing one. Other eligibility restrictions may arise from past convictions. This too, will vary depending on when your last conviction occurred and the nature of the conviction.

Other Eligibility Considerations:

Other insurance conditions may arise depending on the type of vehicle, its use, and any customizations or modifications made to the vehicle. For example, if you have altered your vehicle to enhance its performance or appearance, most insurance companies would need to assess the vehicle to determine if they could insure it. If you plan on modifying your vehicle, call us first! We will let you know if the changes you plan on making could have an impact on your policy.

Other factors that may also prevent an insurer from issuing you a policy:

  • Your vehicle has substantial unrepaired damage or is deemed unsafe
  • Your vehicle is rented or leased to others
  • Your vehicle is used for racing or competition

How Much Does Car Insurance Cost?

There are a number of factors that determine how much your car insurance will cost. Here are 7 of the key factors that insurance companies take into consideration when calculating your car insurance premium:

Your car: The make, model, and year of your car can affect your insurance premium. This determines the cost and value of the car, safety features, and repair costs.

How often you drive: The number of kilometers you drive your car per year will affect your insurance premium.

If you use your car for commercial purposes: If you use your car for work purposes (other than commuting), you may need to get commercial car insurance. Your business may require a higher liability limit.

Your driving record (and the records of all drivers who use your vehicle), which includes: The number of years you’ve all been licensed for. Convictions due to driving infractions (which includes speeding tickets). Accidents.

Where you live: Premiums are usually higher in and around large urban areas

The coverage you choose: The more adequate the coverage, the more it will cost to insure your vehicle
