California Insurance Commissioner Announces New "Pay-As-You-Drive" Rating Option


Effective immediately, insurers may offer a verified actual mileage option instead of, or in addition to, the estimated mileage program that traditionally has been used in determining automobile insurance premiums in California.

Specifically, for purposes of determining the number of miles driven annually by the insured, as required under the Second Mandatory Rating Factor, insurers can either: (a) switch to the new program; (b) offer both the verified actual mileage program and the traditional estimated mileage program; or (c) stick with the traditional program. Insurers that offer both programs must make participation in the verified actual mileage program voluntary.
