The Finnish Motor Insurers’ Centre (LVK) serves as the Finnish information centre as required by the Directive. This means that if you know the vehicle's registration number, you can determine the insurance company of the vehicle involved in the accident and the company’s claims representative with LVK's help.
LVK assists the injured parties with the claim process by providing a searchable claims representative register.
Via the claims representative, you can liaise with the insurance company responsible for the accident from within Finland.
In addition to those involved in the road accident, the claims representative register can be used by the information centres operating in other countries to find the insurance company of a Finnish vehicle.
If you come from outside the European Economic Area (EEA), you can search for the insurance details of a vehicle registered in Finland with the Insurance company search.
Please note that this information shall not be regarded as confirmation of the normally based status of this vehicle.
The registration information of Finnish vehicles are populated to the system from Register of Transport Affairs maintained by Finnish Transport and Communications Agency Traficom.
More information on the claims representative register
In the register, you can find the insurance company of the person responsible for the accident or the claims representative appointed by that insurance company. The contact details found from the register indicate the person you should be in contact with to claim compensation.
The claims representative means the instance that a foreign insurance company has authorised to serve as its representative in handling international accidents. The claims representative handles the road accidents for and on behalf of the foreign insurance company concerned.
In order to find information about the company or its claims representative, you will need to indicate the home country of the vehicle that caused the accident. If you already know the insurance company of the vehicle that caused the accident, the search will provide you with the company’s contact details.
Using the claims representative search is free of charge.
