Pennsylvania- Auto Insurance

In order to legally operate a vehicle in the state of Pennsylvania, you must carry proof of active liability insurance on your vehicle at all times.

In Pennsylvania, you are required to carry liability insurance at the following minimum levels in order to operate a vehicle on state roads and highways:

  • $15,000 for death or injury to any single person involved in an accident
  • $30,000 for death or injury to multiple persons involved in any accident
  • $5,000 for damages caused to the property of the state or another person

If you fail to maintain the minimum levels of insurance coverage (or no coverage) as required by Pennsylvania state law, you will be hit with a $300 fine, suspension of your driver’s license for three months, and suspension of your vehicle registration for three months. Getting your driver’s license and vehicle registration reinstated will require a $50.00 fee each as well.
