The Government of India has made bike insurance mandatory for all bike owners. Therefore it is important to have bike insurance in place.
So, if your insurance has expired or going to expire, make sure you renew it as soon as possible. You will be fined if you don’t possess valid insurance during a police check.
If you are looking for how to check the validity of your bike insurance online, you have come to the right place.
There are three methods to check your bike insurance’s validity online:
1. Through your Insurance provider:
This is the best and the easiest method to find the validity of your insured bike. You can either look into the policy documents that they have given you or you can check the same information online. Each insurance company’s website follows different steps to check the validity. If you can’t find it on the website make sure to call their customer service to ask for help.
