What are Colorado's minimum car insurance requirements?

Colorado drivers are required to have liability coverage limits of at least:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $15,000 in property damage per accident

If you want additional protection beyond Colorado's minimum insurance requirements, consider increasing your auto liability insurance limits to better protect your assets.

Cover your vehicle with comprehensive and collision coverage

If you're leasing or financing your vehicle, most lenders mandate physical damage coverages. If you own your vehicle outright, comprehensive and collision coverage can still be vital in protecting your vehicle against damage, vandalism, and theft.
