Requires an application to obtain ICBC own damage coverage through the Special Risk Own Damage Policy.
Applying for the Special Risk Own Damage Policy
If you require an application to obtain own damage coverage for your luxury vehicle, remember to submit your application for the Special Risk Own Damage policy at least five business days before you buy your insurance policy. Otherwise you could find yourself without own damage coverage until the application is processed.
