What you need to know about Utah car insurance requirements

Your insurance requirements depend on what state you’re in—so here’s what’s required by current Utah car insurance laws.

Utah minimum coverage requirements

Clearcover goes beyond the basics and state minimums to get you more coverage at a better price.

Bodily Injury Liability Coverage

What is it? This coverage protects other people and their medical bills when you cause an accident. What is the coverage requirement in Utah? A minimum of $25,000 per person and $65,000 per accident.

Property Damage Liability Coverage

What is it? This coverage protects other people’s vehicles and property when you’re at fault. What is the coverage requirement in Utah? A minimum of $15,000 per accident.

Personal Injury Protection Coverage

What is it? This coverage (commonly referred to as PIP) helps pay for your medical bills and other expenses, regardless of who caused the accident. What is the coverage requirement in Utah? A minimum of $3,000 per accident.

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

What is it? This coverage helps pay for your expenses if you’re in an accident caused by a driver who does not have enough insurance to cover your bills. What is the coverage requirement in Utah? A minimum of $25,000 per person and $65,000 per accident

These numbers are the minimum insurance requirements for Utah drivers—in the next section, we’ll cover why that’s key in your search for the best car insurance policy.

What else you should know about Utah’s minimum car insurance coverage requirements:

Why is it crucial to thoughtfully consider your state’s minimums when you’re looking for car insurance quotes?

If you’ve ever been in an auto accident, you know that sometimes the cheapest car insurance or the state-required minimum doesn’t always offer you the best financial protection. In fact, not having enough coverage could cost you far more money in the long run!

You should also know that Utah drivers are technically allowed to make the choice to reject (in writing) the loss of income portion of the Personal Injury Protection coverage as well as the Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage.

While rejecting these coverages can make your insurance policy a little bit less expensive in the short-run, it also removes some crucial rights, so you should carefully consider your options before you waive these protections.

Your right to reject both the loss of income portion of Personal Injury Protection and Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverages is, again, based on minimum state requirements. And as mentioned earlier, bare minimum car insurance coverage isn’t always the best financial move.

Important Utah driving laws and quick resources for Utah drivers

Proof of insurance when you’re on (and off) the road

Utah drivers must carry proof of insurance (in the form of an up-to-date insurance card) and have it available to show law enforcement officers when requested. In fact, you may be required to show proof of insurance even when you’re not on the road if you’ve registered a vehicle in Utah and the registration office can’t find a record of your insurance policy. (3)

Digital proofs of insurance, such as an electronic version of your insurance card, are acceptable in the Beehive State. (And if you’re a Clearcover customer, your auto insurance card is always up-to-date and available via our award-winning app—no matter what car you’re driving.)

Driving laws for Utah teens

The freedom to drive is something most teens and their families anticipate for what feels like forever. While the insurance requirements in Utah remain the same for teen and adult drivers, there are important driving restrictions for young drivers that parents and guardians need to keep in mind.

Teen drivers in Utah can get a learner’s permit as early as 15, and then they must complete a driver’s education course, a set number of driving hours with a parent, and additional testing before a state driver’s license is issued.

Are you a parent or guardian getting your teen ready to hit the road? Check out the Clearcover guide to Car Insurance for Teens—Tips to Keep Them Safe and Protected. And for additional information on Utah teen driving requirements and restrictions, consult the Utah Department of Public Safety if needed (4).

Here’s what you need to know as a new Utah driver

If you’ve just moved to Utah, you have 60 days to complete your Utah vehicle registration and transfer titles.

Your vehicle may also need a safety or emissions inspection to complete all requirements for state registration. If needed, see the Utah Division of Motor Vehicles (5).

To begin the process of updating your driver’s license to your new state of residence, you’ll need to apply through the Utah Department of Public Safety’s Driver’s License Application.

What to consider in a car insurance quote

Wherever you’re getting car insurance quotes from and whoever you end up insuring with (we hope you choose us!), there are a couple key things you need to consider when reviewing car insurance quotes for Utah drivers specifically.

  1. What car insurance discounts are available in Utah? (More on that below!)

  2. Are Utah’s minimum insurance requirements enough protection for me, my budget, and my assets? (Usually not, but every situation is different. And this is where connecting with an experienced car insurance agent can help you determine what’s right for you.)

  3. When considering car insurance companies in Utah, how long does it take for claims to resolve and for customers to receive payment? (Clearcover’s current record for fastest claims resolution and payment is 13 minutes.)

  4. Am I simply getting quotes for the cheapest car insurance in Utah? Or am I getting the most coverage for the best price—an ideal quote that fits my specific coverage needs and budget?

Once you’ve thought through your car insurance needs and gathered quotes to compare, make sure to touch base with a professional to determine what’s right for you. (Our Utah car insurance agents are included below.)
