How is car insurance calculated?

An insurance company uses many factors when calculating your auto insurance rates.

  1. Experience behind the wheel: Driving experience is a key factor. Experienced drivers are less likely to be in a collision compared to novice drivers. How long have you been driving? What level of graduated licence do you have?
  2. Your age, gender, marital status: Insurers consider personal information such as your age, gender,, and marital status. Why? New drivers have less experience. Younger drivers, males, and single people are more likely to engage in risky driving. They are more likely to be a crash and get tickets. Studies show that women are less likely to be in accidents.
  3. Driving record: A clean driving record can make a huge difference in how much you pay. Do you have recent tickets or claims? Accidents, traffic violations, and claims will increase your insurance. The amount you pay will decrease when tickets are removed after 3 more years.
  4. Vehicle you drive: What do you have – SUV or a sedan? How old is It? Do you have a new vehicle? Is it a common target for thieves? Does it have a good safety rating? The vehicle you drive, its MSRP, features, repairs, and vehicle type can result in higher premiums.
  5. How you drive and use your vehicle: Do you use your car to drive to work? How many kilometres do you drive per year? Do you use your vehicle for business? If you drive occasionally, you may qualify for a low kilometre discount. Insurers consider the length of your daily commute, how you use your vehicle and how many kilometres you drive annually.
  6. Where you live: Location, location, location. It can matter just as much for insurance as it does for real estate. If your neighbourhood has higher statistics for car theft and crashes you will likely pay more. City, neighbourhood, and even postal code matter.
  7. Amount of coverage: All policies must include the minimum amount of coverage required by law. In Ontario, third-party liability, statutory accident benefits and uninsured automobile are mandatory. All provinces have basic coverage requirements. You can then choose optional coverage for more protection. Adjusting your deductible amount for collision coverage or comprehensive coverage will affect costs.
  8. Your claims and insurance history : Your history as an insured driver matters. Gaps, payment issues, or too many at fault claims will impact your ability to be insured. It will also increase your payments. So, it is an important consideration to keep in mind.

What cannot be used when calculating auto insurance?

Here are the factors that cannot be used:

  • Not at-fault accidents
  • Credit history
  • Employment status
  • If your automobile is owned or leased
  • Length of time at current residence
