Who is a Motor Insurance Agent?

A motor insurance agent is someone who works with an insurance company to sell specific motor insurance products. If you were to be a Motor Agent or POSP, you would help customers choose the right motor insurance policy as per their requirements from all motor vehicle-related insurance plans.

With Digit, you can sell Car, Bike (or 2-Wheeler) and Commercial Vehicle policies.

What is Motor Insurance?

A motor insurance policy can be used to cover a car, a two-wheeler, or a commercial vehicle like an auto or a truck and is compulsory for all vehicles in India. It is also important for people to have it so that they are covered for losses and damages such as in the case of accidents and natural calamities.

There are primarily three types of motor insurance plans – Third Party Motor Insurance Policy, Own Damage Motor Insurance Policy and Comprehensive (or Standard) Motor Insurance Policy.

  • A Third-Party Motor Insurance is mandatory by the Motor Vehicles Act in India, without which people are liable for a heavy fine. It also protects one's pocket from any losses that could arise if their car were to damage any third-party vehicle, person or property.
  • The second is the Own Damage Insurance Policy, which is a customized motor insurance policy that is designed to protect oneself and their own vehicle from damages and losses.
  • Finally, Comprehensive Motor Insurance offers complete protection against both third-party damages and losses, and own damages. This includes protection from unforeseen losses such as accidents, natural calamity, fire or theft.

*Disclaimer - There is no specific category for Agents. If you register for becoming a general Insurance agent, you can sell all general insurance products.
