Its important to understand that by taking a motor insurance, you are transferring the risk from yourself to the motor insurance company

There are three distinct types of motor insurance that you should know:

  • Third party- covers third party body injury and property damages that might occur in an accident
  • The comprehensive cover- cover third party and second party but does not cover first party and family. Owner and family members are required to take personal accident cover
  • Third party fire& theft cover- covers theft in addition to covering third party liability

Required Information[edit]

  • Proof of identity
  • Proof of Vehicle ownership
