Nevada Auto Insurance Policy Requirements

Q: What is in a basic Nevada auto insurance policy?
A: These primary types of auto insurance may be added to a Nevada auto insurance policy:

  1. Liability Coverage
    1. There are two kinds of liability coverage, so that property and people are considered as separate insurance concepts:
      1. Bodily Injury Liability Coverage
      2. Property Damage Liability Coverage
    2. The state of Nevada requires liability coverage. You must have at least liability coverage in your auto insurance policy in order to legally drive in Nevada:
      1. 15/30/10” (Nevada’s minimum auto insurance requirement)
      2. $15,000 for an accident resulting in the injury/death to one person.
      3. $30,000 for an accident resulting in the injury/death to more than one person.
      4. $10,000 for an accident resulting in damage to property.
    3. Liability minimums are not the same for leased vehicles.
  2. Collision Coverage is a requirement in Nevada only if your vehicle is financed (not completely paid for). It is not a state requirement for your Nevada auto insurance policy if the vehicle is not financed.
  3. Comprehensive Coverage is a mandatory addition to your policy if your vehicle is financed. It is not a mandatory addition to your Nevada auto insurance policy if the vehicle is not financed.
  4. Medical Payments Coverage is not required but recommended for an auto insurance policy in Nevada.
  5. Uninsured (and Underinsured) Motorist Coverage is also not required but is recommenced to be added to your Nevada auto insurance policy.
