Need for Motor Insurance in Andhra Pradesh

Along with a valid driving licence, you must also have a valid car or bike insurance policy to drive your vehicle in Andhra Pradesh. A motor insurance policy will help you avoid being penalised with an e-challan in the state for traffic rules violations.

However, a third-party insurance policy has a limited scope of coverage and only covers damages caused to a third party due to your vehicle.
