California Auto Insurance Requirements – In the state of California, liability insurance is required by law on all vehicles that currently operate. This ensures that you as a driver have a way to protect heavy costs related to damage or injury from an accident. Insurance companies are, according to CVC §16058, required to electronically report vehicle insurance information immediately to the Department of Motor Vehicles.
California requires drivers to carry at least the following coverages: Bodily Injury Liability Coverage: $15,000 per person / $30,000 per accident minimum. Property Damage Liability Coverage: $5,000 minimum. Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury Coverage: $15,000 per person / $30,000 per accident minimum.
This means, in California you are only required to have $5,000 in Property Damage Liability. But, most cars are worth much more than that and many car crashes cause far more than $15,000 in damages. The same goes for Bodily Injury Liability requirements. It’s worth it to invest a bit more for higher coverage, rather than finding out after an accident that your insurance coverage isn’t enough.
