Mandatory insurance in Oshawa
Just because insurance is important doesn’t mean it’s always mandatory. In fact, car insurance is the only type of government-mandated insurance in Oshawa. This means that if you drive a vehicle, you are required by law to have a valid insurance policy. Driving without insurance could lead to fines of up to $25,000 for a first offence and up to $50,000 for a second offence (in addition to a 15% surcharge), as well as a driver’s licence suspension. To avoid these serious consequences, speak with a BrokerLink broker and purchase car insurance that meets the minimum requirements set by the Ontario government (this means a policy with no less than $200,000 in third party liability coverage, in addition to accident benefits coverage, uninsured automobile coverage, and direct compensation - property damage coverage).
As mentioned, car insurance is the only government-mandated insurance in Oshawa. However, that doesn’t mean other types of insurance aren’t required. For example, even though home insurance is not a legal requirement, many lenders will make it a condition of one’s mortgage loan. Therefore, if you need a mortgage to purchase a home, you may be required to buy home insurance.
Factors that determine the cost of Oshawa insurance
Insurance companies use many factors to calculate insurance premiums, whether you’re buying car or home insurance. Some of the most common factors that will be considered are as follows:
- Your location
- The size of your home
- The make and model of the car you drive
- Your age
- Your insurance claims history
- Your gender
- Your marital status
- The coverages, limits, and deductibles you choose
