Kentucky Auto Insurance
Kentucky has more miles of running water in any other state, except Alaska. It also has tons of beautiful natural landscapes that are worth driving hundreds of miles to explore. That means hours on the road and many opportunities for the unexpected to happen. That is why Auto Insurance is a mandatory purchase in Kentucky and why AIS is the first place you should go to find an affordable rate!
Required Auto Insurance in Kentucky
Car Insurance is a mandatory purchase in Kentucky. According to the Insurance Research Council, there are about 1 in 5 drivers on the road that do not have adequate Auto Insurance. Without insurance, you are liable to pay out-of-pocket for any damages that you cause with your car. That is why Kentucky legally requires you to have a minimum of Bodily Injury Liability coverage and Property Damage Liability Insurance to help with financial costs incurred from an auto accident. Without PIP coverage you will have to pay for your own and your passenger’s injuries in the case of an accident, regardless of who is at fault.
State Minimum Liability Coverage in Kentucky
- BI or Bodily Injury: $25,000 per person, $50,000 per accident
- PD or Property Damage: $25,000 per accident
State Minimum Personal Injury Protection (PIP) in Kentucky
- Personal Injury Protection: $10,000 per accident

Optional Coverage in Kentucky
Even with the minimum coverages required by Kentucky, you may still not have enough coverage in an accident or for other incidents that cause car-related damages or injuries. The following coverages are optional and worth considering when buying an Auto Insurance policy in Kentucky:
- Collision Coverage*: This gives you financial protection when your car becomes damaged by a collision with another vehicle or object.
- Comprehensive Coverage*: This covers you when your car is damaged by something other than a collision. These covered causes may include fire, vandalism, theft or flooding.
- Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage: If you are involved in an accident with an underinsured or uninsured motorist, this coverage will pay for injuries to you or your passengers. It will also provide coverage if you are a victim of a hit-and-run accident.
*Although Collision coverage and Comprehensive coverage are not required by law, they may be required in your car loan or lease contract with the lender.
You are under no obligation to purchase any of these optional Auto Insurance policies. But if you think that they may be right for you, feel free to call us at Auto Insurance Specialists to see about getting some additional coverage.
