Mandatory Bridgewater auto insurance
Auto insurance is a legal requirement in Nova Scotia, which means all Bridgewater drivers are legally required to have a valid car insurance policy with them at all times. In order for your policy to be valid, it must comply with the minimum coverage requirements set by the province. If you aren’t sure what standard car insurance looks like in Nova Scotia, read more and contact BrokerLink today.
As car insurance is mandatory in Nova Scotia, driving without it is a criminal offense. So if you fail to buy a Bridgewater auto insurance policy or you let your existing policy expire, you run the risk of being slapped with a major fine.
For a first offense in Nova Scotia, you can be fined a minimum of $1,250. For repeat offenses, the fine can go up to $5,850. In addition to a fine, uninsured motorists in Bridgewater may have their licenses suspended by the Registry of Motor Vehicles.
How car insurance premiums are calculated
Many factors are used to determine Bridgewater car insurance rates. Nova Scotia motorists may find it helpful to understand the main factors that influence insurance premiums. The following details are often used to calculate car insurance costs in Bridgewater.
- Where you live (and work - if you drive to work)
- Make and model of vehicle
- Driving record
- Driving experience
- Past claims
- Annual mileage
- Prior insurance coverage
- Your deductible
- Local laws
- How you use your vehicle
- Marital status
Please note that insurance brokerages like BrokerLink do not determine insurance premiums. Car insurance rates are set by insurance companies directly. However, BrokerLink can help you obtain and compare quotes to find the right policy for you and your family.
In addition, it’s important to note that insurance providers do not weigh the above factors equally. Therefore, car insurance quotes from insurance companies will vary. To ensure you find the most competitive rate on your Bridgewater auto insurance, BrokerLink can help.
