Bus/Financial - Insurance
Swedish term or phrase: motorfordonsförsäkring
as in "trafik- eller motorfordonsförsäkring"

colloquially "car insurance," but perhaps there is a specific formal term used in the insurance industry to refer to all kinds of vehicle insurance?

motor vehicle insurance

Car insurance is commonly used - at least in Australia. However, in order to cover all types of motor vehicles you may want to insure, the wider term motor vehicle insurance is more suitable.

The example sentence should of course read: It is a punishable offence....

Example sentence(s):
  • t is a punishable offence to drive your car without a valid motor vehicle insurance policy.
