Victoria, British Columbia — Starting tomorrow, May 1, B.C. drivers no longer need to display license decals showing the month and day their insurance is coming up for renewal.
The change comes as ICBC moved its insurance renewal process online. Law enforcement and authorized ICBC partners have access to the Canadian Police Information Centre and automated license plate recognition to immediately find out whether a vehicle is insured and other details, including whether it’s been reported stolen.
Insurance brokers will remain available for traditional renewals, but nearly three-quarters of respondents in a recent survey said they planned to renew online.
