If you have an eligible ICBC personal auto insurance policy expiring on or after May 1, 2022, you’ll soon have the option of renewing online. The new service launches May 1st, but you can renew your policy up to 44 days before it expires. That means the new online service is available as soon as March 17th.
What can you do online?
If you are eligible to renew online you can:
- Renew the same ICBC insurance coverage you have now
- Add or remove listed drivers
- Update your address
- Change how you use your vehicle
The personal touch is still important. If you want to add or remove Optional coverage, you will need to contact your insurance agent.
What cannot be renewed online?
Some policies and vehicles can’t be processed online, such as:
- temporary operation permits
- new policies, lapsed policies or cancellations
- mid-term changes
- joint ownership or multiple owners
- leased vehicles
- motorcycles, motorhomes (RVs) and collector vehicles
- commercial or fleet policies
How can you determine if your ICBC insurance policy is eligible?
Just reach out to one of our insurance experts to determine if your policy can be renewed online. And remember that whether you renew your ICBC auto insurance online, over the phone or in person, we’re here to support you. You can also use the online tool to determine your eligibility.
How do you renew online?
Go to ICBC’s new tool and select a broker to review your renewal. If you select Coastal Community Insurance Services, we will review your policy and reach out to you directly if we have questions, giving you peace of mind.
What about decals?
We’re glad you asked! From May onward, you don’t need them. Read about the changes to BC’s decal policy here.
No matter the channel, it’s a good idea to review your policy before a renewal. Don’t hesitate to reach out to discuss any changes in your circumstances to ensure you get the policy best suited to you.
