Why is New Driver Insurance Important?
All drivers are required to carry active vehicle insurance in Ontario. In a nut shell, new driver insurance is a contract between you and your insurance company in which a policy is purchased and a premium is paid out-of-pocket on a monthly basis to lower the costs associated with an accident. In the event of a collision, the deductible is paid, leaving the rest of the cost to be covered by the insurance company. Driving without auto insurance leaves the new driver at a vast risk in terms of cost when in an accident as well as a fine between the range of $5,000 and $50,000, and potentially your license suspended or car impounded.
If you are an immigrant from the following countries or provinces, you may get an Ontario driver license based on your past driving experience, making it easier to obtain car insurance for new drivers:
- Other territories and provinces in Canada
- Canadian Forces in Europe
- United States
- Austria, Australia, France, Great Britain, Belgium, Germany, Japan, Isle of Man, Switzerland, and Korea
If you are moving to Kitchener, Waterloo, Cambridge or London from outside of these areas, it may be more difficult to receive auto insurance strictly because there is no prior driving history in Ontario and the Ministry of Transportation will not give you recognition of your driving experience from your country of origin.
