Purchasing your dream car, the BMW 5 Series luxury sedan, from the gleaming showroom is truly an accomplishment and an aspiration turned into reality for many. However, legally driving the BMW 5 Series on the roads requires more than just owning it. Every vehicle owner must buy mandatory car insurance to be able to legally drive their car on public roads. Let's take a closer look at why you need proper insurance for your prized BMW 5 Series and how to choose the right coverage.

As per the Indian Motor Vehicles Act, 1988, all vehicle owners must have at least a basic third-party liability insurance policy to legally drive on public roads. Driving any vehicle, including your new BMW 5 Series, without valid car insurance can lead to legal action including fines or imprisonment.
