The non-insurance violation fine has been introduced to compensate all citizens and residents who own or drive a car from the financial burden of damages, repairs and injury from traffic accidents.
With Saudi Arabia’s high geographical road cover, road development and its dependency of private transport which unfortunately results to the highest number of road accidents in the region. It only makes sense to have compulsory car insurance.
Insurance for your car promises to cover damages, theft and compensations for road accidents and road side break downs.
Comprehensive insurance also covers third-party vehicle damages, which could amount to 10,000,000 riyals (ten million riyals).
Now driving in Saudi will ease the fear of financial burdens of an accident and the hassle of who and how much is needed to pay for repairs.
