Frequently Asked Questions

​What if I already have a comprehensive insurance policy?

Your personal auto insurance policy may not provide coverage for you if you drive for a service like Bolt. This is because personal car insurance policies often come with a list of exclusions such as driving-for-hire that restricts your protection.

Who can access Drivers Shield?

This cover is open to all drivers currently on the Bolt platform. It is a mandatory document to operate on the platform.
