Did you recently get a car insurance non-renewal letter from your insurance company for having too many convictions? If you have, understand that this is normal.
In Ontario most insurance companies non-renew your policy when you have 3 or more tickets. That likely sounds quite strict to you. After all, cops love to give it tickets, especially speeding tickets, right? I agree. But those are the rules.
Ontario car insurance non-renewal – Driver has 3 or more minor convictions in the last 3 years
For a car insurance company to cancel your insurance policy in Ontario, they have to send you a letter that states the reason. The declination letter might read something like this:
“We have reviewed the above policy. Please be advised that we are unable to renew the policy as it no
longer meets our underwriting guidelines due to the following reason(s):
As per rule 1a, we will decline to issue, terminate or refuse to renew a contract of insurance for the
following reason(s): Driver has 3 or more minor convictions in the preceding 3 years.
Under the Insurance Act, we are required to give you at least 30 days notice of our intention to non-renew.”
Of course, this letter would be specifically for someone that is being non-renewed for 3 or more tickets. There are many other things that a driver might be non-renewed for, including having too many at-fault accidents.
