As part of our ongoing commitment to keeping you informed and ensuring seamless motor insurance, we’re here to discuss a significant legal update. In the coming months, a new requirement under the Road Traffic Act will mandate the inclusion of a verified driving licence number during policy purchase or renewal. Let’s delve into what this means for you and how we’re ready to assist.


Key Points to Note


With the introduction of this new legal requirement, it’s imperative that we collect and verify driving licence numbers for all policy holders. Whether you’re renewing an existing policy, purchasing a new one, or need to replace a lost licence, having your driving licence number readily available is essential for a smooth process.


Your driving licence number serves as a crucial identifier in ensuring accurate and valid insurance coverage. We won’t be able to proceed with your policy renewal if we don’t have this information. That’s why it’s essential to provide it to us promptly.

Be Prepared

Knowing your driver’s licence number can also be beneficial in unexpected situations on the road, such as accident reporting or emergency assistance requests. Having this information readily accessible can expedite necessary processes and ensure timely assistance when needed most.
