The multiple-crash premium was introduced on Sept. 1, 2000, to help reduce the number of crashes on our roads.
We have found that by introducing the premium, drivers have become more considerate of their actions and are less likely to drive in a way that could cause a crash.
If you are 50 per cent or more at fault for three crashes in three years, you may be required to pay $1,000, plus your Autoplan premium. For each additional crash within three years, you would pay an extra $500.
If you are less than 50 per cent at fault for these crashes, the multiple-crash premium doesn’t apply to you.
You can pay your multiple-crash premium any time in person or by mail.
You won’t be able to renew your licence or Autoplan insurance until you have paid it. Also, interest is applied to any outstanding amount.
Please bring the bill we sent to you and pay at one of these locations:
Pay by cash, cheque or money order. Most locations will also accept credit or debit card.
If you pay by mail, be sure to include:
Please send these items to:

Please don't send cash in the mail. Also, we suggest keeping your cancelled cheque or money order receipt as proof of payment.
Unfortunately, you cannot dispute your multiple-crash premium, but you may be able to dispute your fault in the crashes.
If your dispute is successful, you could avoid paying this premium.
You can avoid paying the multiple-crash premium by giving up your licence for one year.
Because this isn’t possible for everybody, you can also choose a different length of time to give up your licence. You will receive a reduction based on how long you stop driving.
|If you . . .||Then . . .|
|surrender your driver’s licence for six months||you would only have to pay half of the multiple-crash premium, or $500.|
|voluntarily give up your driver's licence through a driver licensing office for one year||you will not have to pay the multiple-crash premium|
|get your licence re-issued before the year is over||you will pay a pro-rated multiple-crash premium.|
Note: Interest will be applied to any outstanding amounts.
