Nevada Car Insurance Requirements

  • Bodily injury liability: required
  • Property damage liability: required
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): not required
  • Uninsured motorist: not required
  • Minimum liability limits: 15/30/10
    • Coverage up to $30,000 for all persons injured in an accident, subject to a limit of $15,000 for one individual, and $10,000 coverage for property damage.

Nevada state law requires vehicle owners to purchase policies with these minimum liability limits. Penalties for ignoring the law include fines and loss of driving privileges and vehicle registration. Paying penalties does not relieve offenders of responsibility for accidents or securing required Nevada car insurance coverage in the future.

Nevada Uninsured Motorists

  • National uninsured motorists: 12.6%
  • Nevada uninsured motorists: 12.2%
  • Nevada average vehicle repair cost: $2,218

The ratio of uninsured Nevadans is close to the national average. An uninsured driver is a risky person to get into an accident with; if the driver without the required coverage is at-fault, there’s no guarantee that you’ll get compensated for your loss.

Nevada does not require uninsured motorist coverage, but your agent may suggest this policy option as a way to protect you if your vehicle is damaged by an uninsured driver.

Number of Thefts in Nevada

  • National car theft rate (per 1,000 registered vehicles): 2.94
  • Nevada car theft rate (per 1,000 registered vehicles): 4.86

The rate of car thefts in Nevada is much higher than the national average. The National Insurance Crime Bureau lists the Las Vegas metropolitan area as No. 18 in a list of the 100 cities with the highest theft rates, and the Reno area is also mentioned as No. 103 on the list of cities with high rates of vehicle thefts.

The rate has decreased in recent years. Comprehensive insurance can help vehicle owners protect their investments by covering loss and damage due to vehicle thefts.
