What is DASH?

Driver and Auto Search History (DASH) is an industry-directed policy and claims information system designed to retrieve driver and auto data for the Canadian insurance industry. It provides detailed reports on a consumer’s auto insurance history including policies, claims, and other relevant information used to provide an insurance quote.

DASH Consumer Driver Report

A DASH Consumer Driver Report is a summary of an individual’s auto insurance policy and claims history. The policy and claims information in the report is submitted by the Property and Casualty insurance industry across Canada. Insurance brokers and insurance companies may use the information on your report to provide a quote, underwrite your insurance policy and determine an appropriate premium. Consumers can request their own report at no charge once per year.

What’s included in your report

The DASH Consumer Driver Report contains four main types of information:

1. Identifying information: This section includes your name, address, date of birth, gender, marital status and driver’s license number.

2. Policy history:  This section includes current and historical information on the auto insurance policies where you are either policy holder or named operator for a vehicle(s) insured.  Additional information includes details for the vehicle itself, policy start and end dates, insurance coverage types and vehicle reported use. 

3. Claims history: This section is a record of auto insurance claims you have made and/or accidents where you have been a third party driver. Insurance companies may use the claim history to help determine your coverage and premiums.  

4. Inquiry information: This section lists every time your DASH report was accessed and by which brokerage or insurance company. Each request or access to your DASH report is called an “inquiry”.
