§

4211. Volunteer drivers

(a) An insurer

may not refuse to issue motor vehicle liability insurance to an applicant

solely because the applicant is a volunteer driver. An insurer may not impose a

surcharge or otherwise increase the rate for a motor vehicle policy solely on

the basis that the named insured, a member of the insured's household, or a

person who customarily operates the insured's vehicle is a volunteer driver.

(b) As used in

this section, "volunteer driver" means a person who provides services,

including transporting individuals or goods, without compensation above mileage

expenses to a charitable organization or nonprofit corporation established

under Title 11B, pursuant to a written agreement.

(c) This section

does not prohibit an insurer from refusing to renew, imposing a surcharge on,

or otherwise raising the rate for a motor vehicle liability insurance policy

based upon factors other than the volunteer status of the insured driver.
