Changes to ICBC Car Insurance

What is changing with car insurance in BC?

Effective September 1, 2019, ICBC is changing how insurance premiums are calculated. Driving experience and accident history will now have a greater impact on your insurance premiums. The type of vehicle, how it is used and where you live will continue to be included in the new calculation as well.

With the new driver based system, ICBC will require you not only to declare the primary driver but also to list any other people who will drive your vehicle.

ICBC has an  interactive tool that can help you understand how adding drivers can impact your premium or learn more by watching the video below.
