pretty tough to get direct from the insurer.  You could claim it in small claims against the previous partner, but would have to proove that it was not just a gift.

Were you listrd as the principal driver? Can you proove you paid?  Otherwise, 
Unfortunately ICBC has to deal with the registered owner, unless you can get the registered owner to sign an assignment of the premium refund, I think you have to deal with the girlfriend, not ICBC.
