Required Auto Insurance in Arizona
Auto insurance requirements in Arizona include bodily injury liability and property damage liability. When you buy a policy with liability insurance… the other driver, passengers, and property involved in an accident that you might have caused will be financially covered (up to your policy’s limits). Remember, liability insurance won’t pay for your personal damages or injuries in an accident.
State Minimum Liability Coverage in Arizona:
- BI or Bodily Injury: $15,000 per person, $30,000 total per accident
- PD or Property Damage: $10,000 per accident

Optional Coverage in Arizona to Consider
The state-mandated minimums for Arizona drivers could help save you some money in the event of an accident, but there are many other factors that must be considered. If they aren’t, you could end up paying a lot more than you should for an accident, injuries, or other damages.
Below are some examples you may want to consider:
- Uninsured or Underinsured Motorist Coverage - Even though the law requires Arizona drivers to purchase liability insurance, there are still those who would break the law, and drive uninsured. If you are hit by one of these drivers, you may have to pay for your own property damages and injuries, even if the accident wasn’t your fault.
- Collision Coverage - If you are found to be at fault for an accident, you will be held responsible for paying the damages and injuries to the other car and people involved. But, odds are, your own car suffered damages that will need to be repaired. Collision coverage would help pay for those damages, up to your policy’s limits. Considering that the national average repair costs are almost $3,000, adding collision coverage to your policy could save you a significant amount of money.
- Comprehensive Coverage - Car damage can come in many forms, and natural disasters can make for some costly repairs. Consider flooding, storms, fires, and more… comprehensive coverage would protect you from paying for these issues fully out of pocket.
- Higher Bodily Injury Limits - Injuries, or at the very least doctor visits, usually go hand in hand with car accidents. But if an accident is severe, chances are the injuries sustained may be severe, too. The $15,000 minimum may not be enough to cover ambulance rides, doctor visits, and treatment. Consider a limit higher than the state-mandated minimum, and your savings could be higher.
- Higher Property Damage Limits - The $10,000 property damage liability minimum may not stretch as far as you think. Keep in mind that repairs following an accident aren’t always limited to vehicles. Including the costs of car repairs, you may need to pay for repairs to light poles, fences, buildings, or other property damage. That minimum could be used up fairly quickly, and you may end up in a situation in which you’ll have to pay the remainder.
These higher limits and additional types are not required by the state of Arizona, but we at AIS highly recommend that you consider adding them to your own policy. A great way to determine your auto insurance needs is to call a licensed insurance agent.
