Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in CO

All motor vehicles operated or parked on Colorado roadways are required to be insured. Proof of insurance must be carried in your car at all times and must be available when:

  • Requested by law enforcement

  • Renewing vehicle registration

  • The vehicle is involved in a car accident

The minimum liability insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in Colorado[1] are:

  • $25,000 per person for bodily injury

  • $50,000 per accident for bodily injury

As a major part of your liability insurance, bodily injury coverage covers medical bills for people other than the policyholder who are injured during an accident. Colorado is an at-fault state, meaning the driver who is responsible for the collision is also responsible for paying for any resulting expenses, either through their car insurance provider or out of pocket.

  • $15,000 per accident for property damage

If it’s determined that an insured driver is at fault for an accident, this coverage pays for repairs to the property of the other involved parties. Additionally, property damage coverage can cover legal costs if the insured driver is involved in a lawsuit following the accident.

Golden Car Insurance Rates by Driving and Accident History

If you have an accident, speeding ticket, or DUI on your driving record your car insurance rates will likely be higher. On the other hand, if you have a clean record, you may be able to take advantage of lower car insurance rates[2]. For example, a driver in Golden with a clean record pays an average of $204 per month, while a driver with an at-fault accident pays $298.

Driver HistoryAverage Monthly Cost
Clean Record$204
Speeding Ticket$273
At-Fault Accident$298
DUI$406

Golden Car Insurance Rates by Credit Tier

On the other hand, if you have poor credit, it may slightly increase your rates. Credit score[3] doesn’t have as significant an impact on your rates as other factors, like the value of your vehicle and your driving history.

Credit TierAverage Monthly Cost

Good$197
Average$217
Poor$336
