Kentucky Auto Insurance Policy Requirements

Q: What is in a basic Kentucky auto insurance policy?
A: Kentucky drivers must choose from the following options that can be added to their auto insurance policies:

  1. Liability Coverage
    1. The two kinds of liability insurance separate the concepts of property and people:
      1. Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
      2. Property Damage Liability Coverage
    2. Kentucky requires that all drivers possess liability coverage on their auto insurance policy. To legally drive in Kentucky, along with having a valid driver’s license, there is a minimum requirement:
      1. 25/50/10” (Kentucky’s minimum auto insurance requirement)
      2. $25,000 for injury/death to one person.
      3. $50,000 for injury/death to more than one person.
      4. $10,000 for damage to property.
    3. Leased vehicles require a different liability minimum.
  2. Collision Coverage is an optional addition only if the vehicle is no longer financed. If your vehicle is financed, then collision is a mandatory part of your Kentucky auto insurance policy.
  3. Comprehensive Coverage, like collision, is optional only if the vehicle is no longer financed. If your vehicle is still financed, then comprehensive coverage is absolutely mandatory for your auto insurance policy.
  4. Medical Payments Coverage is recommended, though not required, for a Kentucky auto insurance policy.
  5. Uninsured (and Underinsured) Motorist Coverage is another option that you may include though it is not required in Kentucky.
  6. Personal Injury Protection (PIP) Coverage is compulsory for a Kentucky auto insurance policy.
  7. Other Options
    1. Towing Coverage
    2. Rental Coverage
    3. Loan/Lease Gap Coverage
