There are some essential documents you need to drive your vehicle on the roads in India. One of the main documents that you need is the RC book. RC is the registration certificate of your vehicle that has all the essential details of your vehicle. It is proof of vehicle ownership, and it also has your personal information, like your name and residential address.

Without RC, it is illegal to drive your vehicle on the roads in the country. If you have changed your residential address, it is also mandatory to change the address in the RC book. Just like you cannot drive on Indian roads without an RC, you also cannot drive on the road without a valid four-wheeler and two-wheeler insurance plan. The insurance for two-wheeler and four-wheelers ensures that you are financially protected in case your vehicle is involved in an accident on the road.

There are many different four-wheeler and two-wheeler insurance plans available online on the Tata AIG website. You can compare the plans and choose a plan that you think is suitable for you. Also, you can use our bike insurance calculator to understand the premium that you need to pay for the bike and car insurance plans.
