ICBC Decal Elimination and Introduction to Online Renewals

Apr 29

Get ready for two new changes to ICBC this weekend!

As of May 1st 2022, BC drivers will no longer be required to display insurance decals on their license plates. After May 1st you can remove your decals, cover them with any color of plain material, or you may continue to display expired decals legally.

In addition to the elimination of decals, ICBC will also be offering online insurance renewals as of May 1st.

Who can renew their insurance online?

Many customers with a personal ICBC policy due for renewal within 44 days are eligible for online renewal. To be eligible you must be the sole vehicle owner, and you must not be planning to make changes to your coverage.

When renewing your insurance online you will need to have your BC Services Card app ready on your mobile device. You can learn how to set yours up here.

Who cannot renew their insurance online?

Those with a jointly owned vehicle, leased vehicle, company-owned vehicle, motorcycle, collector car, vehicle with a commercial policy or expired policy are not eligible to renew online. Additionally, if you’d like to make changes to your optional coverages or have outstanding debt to ICBC you may not be eligible to renew online.

Please note: You must continue to carry a printed copy of your insurance documents in your vehicle at all times.

If you do not have access to a printer, you may request a copy by mail, or visit a broker office to request a printed copy.
