Car insurance laws in Utah operate under no-fault auto insurance and all drivers are required to obtain and maintain minimum car insurance coverage for any registered vehicle.

Utah Car Insurance Requirements

While on the surface Utah car insurance requirements seem to provide rather sufficient coverage for most minor accidents there is still a good chance a driver could be held personally liable for car accident damages. Statistics show that most minor car accidents only include vehicle damage and Utah’s minimum auto insurance requirements provide enough coverage for almost any minor vehicular damage. However the real threat of personal liability comes with car accidents causing total loss or physical injuries. Medical costs can quickly surpass $25,000 and the replacement value for almost all new cars can easily exceed $25,000. Any claim for damages above and beyond your policy limits can subject you to litigation for personal liability – even in a no fault state. Utah’s current minimum car insurance requirements are:

  • $25,000 liability insurance per accident (one injured person)
  • $65,000 liability insurance per accident for all persons
  • $3,000 in personal injury protection (PIP)
  • $15,000 property damage coverage

Many Utah drivers always opt for additional coverage and expanded limits beyond state minimum requirements. The additional cost to car insurance premiums are often minimal for policy coverage exceeding well over $100,000 and can provide much greater piece of mind when operating a vehicle.

What are the penalties for driving with no auto insurance in Utah?

Serious. Not only are you exposing your personal assets to claim in the event of an accident but should you be charged and convicted of operating a vehicle with no auto insurance the Utah DMV can suspend both your vehicle registration and your drivers license. The only way to restore your driving privileges will be to pay a fine (up to $1,000) and file a SR-22 form with the State which will automatically result in you paying 200% or more in car insurance premiums.

What is No-Fault Car Insurance?

No-fault car insurance is not a type of auto insurance but a set of laws created to help determine guilt. States with no-fault car insurance laws do not apply guilt at the scene of an accident so no driver is technically at-fault and the respective car insurance policy of each driver will pay for damages.
