1) Play your Role - BE A SMART CONSUMER
Liberalisation provides insurance companies / takaful operators with the opportunity to offer new and innovative products and services to meet consumers' different needs.
You can find out about the various motor insurance/takaful products that are available, make comparisons before selecting an insurance/takaful plan that meets your requirements and budget by using the "Motor Product Selector", available at www.piam.org.my / www.malaysiantakaful.com.my
You can also contact your insurance company/ takaful operator or agent for more details.
2) Play your Role - BE A SAFE DRIVER
Having a clean traffic record improves your risk profile, which can be beneficial when you buy or renew your motor insurance/takaful Therefore, make these acts a habit:
a) Follow the speed limit at all times.
b) Observe and follow traffic rules.
c) Don't use your mobile phone when driving as it distracts your focus.
3) Play your Role - BE A RESPONSIBLE CAR OWNER
A poorly maintained vehicle might not be able to perform effectively and may result in accidents. Service your vehicle as per scheduled to reduce the risk of accidents.
An accident-free vehicle means your No Claim Discount (NCD) is maintained and will be a long term savings in your premiums / takaful contributions.

Currently, motor insurance premiums or motor takaful contributions are determined by tariffed rates based on model, age and engine capacity of vehicles, and discounts in the form of NCD*. Starting 1 July 2017, the premium/takaful contribution for Motor Comprehensive and Motor Third Party and Theft products will be determined by individual insurance companies and takaful operators. Liberalisation will drive fairer ways of pricing premiums/takaful contributions based on risk profiles, which will encourage road users to be more responsible. This will spur innovation with more products and services to meet different consumer needs for the ultimate benefit of the motoring public.
*No Claims Discount
