WINNIPEG — Manitoba drivers will be shelling out more for vehicle insurance beginning next year.
The Public Utilities Board has approved a 1.8 percent hike for basic compulsory motor vehicle premiums beginning March 1, 2019.
The increase is slightly lower than the 2.2 percent that Manitoba Public Insurance was requesting.
The PUB says, in its decision, not all motorists will see their insurance go up. Increases will be determined based on a motorist’s driving record, the registered vehicle (make and model and year), the purpose for which the vehicle is driven and the territory in which the policyholder resides.
