What are Idaho's auto insurance requirements?

Idaho drivers need 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

Although these are the minimum limits required in the Gem State, you can extend your limits to fully safeguard your assets. Learn more about auto liability insurance.

Comprehensive and collision coverage protect you and your car

Most lenders require comprehensive coverage and auto collision coverage coverage when you finance or lease a car. But even if your car is paid off, you might want to consider these coverages in case your vehicle gets damaged or stolen. With these coverages, you would only pay your deductible rather than the repair bill, or the full price of a new car.
