Now that you’ve done that, let’s get started. A driver’s license is a big part of getting auto insurance in Malaysia. One major reason for this is because any auto insurance company requires this information to research your driving history. If they don’t have it, then they can’t estimate the potential risk they’re taking on with your driving. By extension, this means that they may experience a little difficulty evaluating what you’ll pay a premium for your insurance. For this reason, finding an insurer that will offer you coverage in the absence of a driver’s license is a bit challenging. It’s challenging, but not impossible. Some insurers will still extend your coverage even when you don’t have a valid driver’s license. These insurers account for the fact you mightn’t have a license due to factors like using a chauffeur or having an existing medical condition. To that end, if you want to get coverage from these providers, you can do so using any of the following channels.
Name Someone Else as the Primary Driver
You can simply buy the policy under the name of another individual. This works best if the person you’ll be using,
- Lives at your address,
- Is related to you, and
- Possesses a valid driver’s license
However, depending on your potential insurer’s exact requirements, the person filling for you as the primary driver may not have to meet all the demands just mentioned. Still, in line with this approach, you could buy the policy and list yourself as an excluded driver. Many insurance providers are usually open to this. You have to remember that should you get involved in an accident while driving, you won’t receive any payout to cover the resulting expenses.
List a Licensed Driver As Vehicle Co-Owner
Alternatively, you could take out the policy and then list someone with a valid driver’s license as the vehicle’s co-owner. On many levels, following this approach may prove more convenient for you than the previous option.
Operate a Parked Car Policy
If you have an exotic or expensive car parked in your garage that you simply MUST take on an insurance, you can work out an arrangement where your insurer drops other coverage but still insures your vehicle against theft, fire and damages. Essentially, these are the most common ways you can insure your vehicle without possessing a driver’s license. So what do you think of possessing cars without a driver’s license?
