Manitoba Public Insurance (MPI) is seeking to expand its Driver Safety Rating (DSR) System from 37 levels to 38.

If approved, the highest level a driver can achieve on the DSR will be +17. The new expansion will allow the safest drivers to receive the greatest benefits. This will be the second level increase to the DSR system. Last year, the system was expanded from +15 to +16.

Drivers will see increased vehicle premium discounts for levels 10-17.

The highest-risk drivers pay up to a $3,000 premium on their driver’s licence charge and receive no savings on their vehicle insurance.
