We all purchase motor insurance for ourselves, and most brokers place it for their clients in some shape way or form, but how much do we really know about motor insurance? It has become so automated that many broker and insurer staff have forgotten the details of the cover, and some have never even been taught about the coverage. This is the opportunity to refresh and learn about this essential cover.

A generation back, most people's first taste of insurance was writing out cover notes and working through manual rating guides forcing staff to understand component parts of motor cover. This has now been replaced by big data and automation, meaning fewer and fewer people have retained knowledge of this key cover.

This webinar is presented by Alan Chandler, who is one of the most popular insurance presenters in the UK. Alan will go through the key component parts of a motor policy and it will include looking at what is actually covered under the main cover options. He will also explore how rating is evolving with big data which will transform the way motor insurance is rated.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand how third party motor cover operates;
• Understand how fire, theft and comprehensive motor cover operates;
• Understand the main exclusions of a motor policy;
• Understand how rating of motor insurance is evolving.

This presentation is suitable for insurers, brokers, handlers, underwriters, loss adjusters and claims staff alike - for those who need to learn about/have a refresher on the basics of motor insurance.
