Buying and renewing Autoplan will change; a new rating model will ensure all drivers pay the right insurance premium, and are held held responsible for their own driving and decision-making.

You should prepare to possibly pay more for car insurance. However, ICBC’s new rules will also reward good drivers, encourage safety and responsibility, and help the injured better recover from accidents and crashes.
