Older car insurance customers 'need to follow doctors' orders'

Car insurance policyholders over the age of 75 need to have a medical certificate and heed any advice or recommendations given by their doctors.

This is according to a spokesperson from Transport and Main Roads, who told the Sunshine Coast Daily that this certificate needs to be carried by older motorists at all times.

He explained that those with car insurance who are past a certain age will have their circumstances taken into account by medical professionals.

"A doctor will decide how long each certificate will last by taking into account the nature of any medical condition and how often they need to monitor the patient's progress," he stated.

This comes after a study by the National Australia Bank and the Centre for Social Impact found that car insurance is one area that those struggling financially try to save money in, the Herald Sun reported.

Individuals who want a policy but are strapped for cash may find that going online to compare car insurance is an effective way to get a low-cost option.
