I registered a bike without insurance. Assuming you might use the same registration office, then I guess not. It's a wild supposition though...

Cambodia is the only ASEAN country to not require compulsory insurance for private vehicles.

It is mandatory for commercial vehicles.

Plans for a Law to address this issue were announced in June 2019.

No time-frame was given.

There is a thread on here covering the announcement
