Is there an age limit for vehicles being insured?

Vehicles after a certain age are considered ineligible for comprehensive cover. But, third party only cover is mandatory irrespective of the vehicle's age.

Private cars that are over 15 years old are normally not considered for comprehensive cover. For vehicles between 10 and 15 years old, car insurance insurers insist on an inspection report from a surveyor certifying the condition of the vehicle.

Motorcycles and commercial vehicles over 10 years old are normally not granted comprehensive insurance cover.

However, remember that no age limit exists for purchasing the Third Party cover, which is a mandatory requirement for all vehicles.
