ICBC Translation Vancouver – Claims History Letter


If you are a new or returning BC resident, obtaining an accurate ICBC translation of the claims history letter from your previous auto insurer in a non-English speaking country is the first step toward getting an insurance discount. You can receive a five-percent discount for each claim-free year, up to a maximum discount of forty percent. ICBC will look at the last 8+ continuous claim-free years. An ICBC translator is aware of this system and that is the main reason the Insurance Company of British Columbia maintains the approved translator list – ICBC. Being recognized by ICBC is our basic criterion when selecting the right ICBC translators for your short translation project.


Therefore, providing insurance claims history letters from your previous insurance companies can result in significant savings on insurance premiums. It is worth the effort. You will get the money spent on this crucial ICBC translation back by paying significantly lower premiums starting from the moment you present the translated letter to your insurance broker. It has become even more important since ICBC announced recent changes to their Claim Rated Scale (CRS) system, which means that drivers will lose their discounts more quickly when having a chargeable claim, even if it’s their first.

Pre-Translation Preparation


To prepare to collect this discount, focus on putting all your documents – claims history letters – together and making sure that they contain all necessary details required by ICBC. Otherwise, incomplete document(s) translated from other languages will be rejected and you will have to repeat the whole process, which will cost you more.
