A bit of both: Quebec
The Quebec auto insurance model is a bit different than the rest. Some components of a Quebec driver’s coverage are rolled into their driver’s licence and vehicle registration fees.

Insurance is funny, in a weird sort of way, because rates can vary wildly between insurance companies. Also, premiums often change so the insurance provider who offered you the best rate two years ago, or even last year, may not be the insurer who offers you the best car insurance rate today. That’s why it’s so important to shop around, because the quote you get from one company can be significantly higher (or lower) than the quote you get from another.
