Auto insurance for high risk is more expensive because companies consider them more likely to make a claim, based on their driving and claims histories.
A clean driving record and good claims history are key to helping keep your rates low.
The length of a high risk designation may differ between provinces and depend on how the offence was characterized on your driving record.
Claims generally stay on your record for six years and convictions for three years.
As the offending incident ages and/or falls off your record, you’re less and less likely to be considered high risk.
We recommend that you keep track of dates related to the claim or driving offence that deemed you a high risk. Every year after your claim or conviction, comparison shop to see if you qualify for a lower rate.
High risk drivers can reduce their insurance by:
Maintaining a clean record: Abide by traffic laws, don’t stunt drive, don’t drink and drive.
Zero tickets: Drivers with no traffic tickets for at least three years may be eligible for lower premiums.
No accidents: Drivers without an accident for six years may be eligible for lower premiums.
Reflect your experience: Consider taking a driving course.
Pay on time: Paying your premiums on time may make you eligible for a better rate.
Your coverage can be cancelled for late payment and for non-payment. The cancellation of a policy because of an outstanding payment can be a big problem for drivers later.
