transfer of insurance

I purchased a used car recently. The vehicle insurance policy purcahsed by the previous owner is  still valid. Do I  need to get the insurance policy transferred?

Re: transfer of insurance

As per the rules, the registration of the vehicle and the vehicle insurance policy must be in the name of a single person with the same address. Hence, you cannot lodge a claim unless the insurance policy is transferred to your name.

Yes, the policy needs to be transferred in your name and the sooner you do it the better.
