Do You Need a Car Insurance?

Of course! All cars in Malaysia are required to have a car insurance plan before you can renew your annual road tax.

Without an active car insurance plan, you won't be able to renew your road tax with the Road Transport Department (JPJ) in Malaysia. The fine for being caught driving without your road tax can be as much as RM3,000! Hence you should have your car insurance sorted out before your road tax is due.

How Much Coverage of
Car Insurance Should You Buy?

A common next question is: What kind of car insurance would I need? There are three main plan types for car insurance and the differences between them is in the level of protection they offer. The three plans are:

  1. Third Party Insurance – for the repairs of damages caused to a third-party car and any medical claims for any third-party injuries sustained during the accident;
  2. Third Party, Fire and Theft Insurance – In addition to Third Party Insurance, protection to your car in the event it catches fire or if it suffers from car theft; and
  3. Comprehensive Insurance – In addition to Third Party, Fire and Theft Insurance, protection for the repairs of damages caused to your own vehicle.

 



 

 

How is a Car Insurance Product Like?

The Car Insurance premium is paid at the start of the policy period and the coverage will last for one year.

The key features of a comprehensive car insurance plan would include:

  • Cover for third-party property damage
  • Death or bodily injury to third-party
  • Cover for damages to your own car
  • Excess – Most car insurance plans are subject to an excess clause. An excess is the first amount of a claim for which you will have to pay for. The insurance cover will pay for the amount beyond the excess, up to the limits as specified in the policy contract.
  • Add-Ons – Many car insurance plans allow customers to choose from a variety of additional covers. Add-ons allow you to customise your car insurance to fit your needs. You may also choose to opt for some of the riders available, depending on how relevant you assess the risk is, in addition to your basic comprehensive cover:
    o Compensation for Assessed Repair Time – (“CART”)
    o Inclusion of Special Perils
    o Passenger Liability
    o Private Hire Car / E-Hailing
    o Strike, Riot and Civil Commotion
    o Waiver of Betterment
    o Windscreen Damage

Commonly Asked Questions about Car Insurance

  1. What is the difference between Agreed Value and Market Value?
    Market Value represents the market value of the car at the time of the claim, taking into account the condition of the car based on its age, make and model. Agreed Value is the fixed value of the car as agreed by both the individuals taking on the policy and the insurer. Under an Agreed Value car insurance policy, you can expect to pay higher car insurance premiums if the agreed value is higher than the car's market value.
  2. What are the implications of over-insuring or under-insuring my vehicle?
    If you over-insure your vehicle, you pay higher, but unnecessary premiums. If you under-insure, you're considered as "self-insuring" the difference between the sum insured and the actual value of the vehicle, meaning if there's any damage, you have to bear your portion of the total repair cost that is not insured.

  3. Is my own death or bodily injuries during a motor accident covered?
    No, your own death and/or bodily injuries are not covered during a motor accident. These would be covered under your medical insurance instead, or any other personal accident plan you might have.

  4. What is a No Claims Discount (NCD) and how much NCD can I expect on my next car insurance renewal?
    No-Claim Discount (NCD) is a reward for safe driving, given to car owners who have not made any claims within a year or more upon renewal of their motor or car insurance. The NCD discount rate is based on a fixed rate and it goes higher the longer the car owner doesn’t make any claims up to a maximum of 55% after five years. Unfortunately accidents happen, so when you make a claim, the NCD entitlement that you accumulated will go back to zero. The next time you renew your policy, you will pay for your premium in full, and will only receive NCD the year after. Because of this, sometimes people prefer to pay for the cost of a smaller accident or damage themselves if it comes up to less than what they would lose in their NCD.
