What are Pennsylvania's auto insurance requirements?

Pennsylvania auto insurance laws and regulations require all drivers to have car insurance. Drivers in the Keystone State must have auto liability coverage limits of at least:

  • $15,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $30,000 in total bodily injury per accident
  • $5,000 in property damage per accident

To protect your assets, you can always choose higher liability limits than what's required for car insurance in Pennsylvania. Set your limits high enough to cover your total net worth in case you're liable in a covered accident.

PA uninsured motorist coverage and first-party benefits

Drivers in Pennsylvania are required to carry first-party benefits (FPB) and should also consider uninsured/underinsured bodily injury coverage (UM/UIM BI) with the following minimum limits:

  • FPB: $5,000
  • UM/UIM BI: $15,000 per person, $30,000 per accident. (Note: this coverage can be rejected)

FPB covers a range of medical expenses for you and your passengers regardless of fault, including medical, dental, hospitalization, and nursing services. UM/UIM BI covers medical expenses for you and your passengers if you are hit by a driver with not enough coverage or no insurance at all.
