What are Oregon's minimum requirements for car insurance?

For liability coverage, you need limits of at least:

  • $25,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $50,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $20,000 in property damage per accident

The Beaver State also mandates personal injury protection (PIP) and uninsured/underinsured bodily injury coverage (UM/UIM BI) with the following minimum limits:

  • PIP: $15,000
  • UM/UIM BI: $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident

Personal injury protection takes care of your medical costs, plus lost wages and death benefits, and you'll receive a payout even if you're at fault. UM/UIM BI also covers medical expenses for you and your passengers if a driver with insufficient coverage (or no insurance at all) runs into you.

These are just the minimum coverages and limits you need in Oregon. Consider increasing your limits or adding more coverages to give yourself more protection.

Leasing or have a car loan? Take a look at comprehensive and collision coverage

Most lenders will require comprehensive and collision coverage if you lease or finance your car. But even if you aren't required to carry them, these coverages are good to have in case your car is ever damaged or stolen. If you ever file a claim, all you'd need to pay is your deductible, rather than the repair bill.

What to know when driving in Oregon:

  1. In Oregon, everyone in your vehicle is required to wear a seat belt regardless of which seat they're in or how old they are. Not wearing a seat belt can also get you pulled over, so click it and avoid a ticket.

  2. Oregon doesn't look kindly on speeding or reckless driving. The Beaver State carries some of the heftiest fines for first and second-time offenders.

  3. Portland has one of the nation's highest incidences of car theft. You can protect yourself by locking your car and adding comprehensive coverage to your auto policy.
