Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in New Mexico

All motor vehicles operated or parked on New Mexico 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 New Mexico[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. New Mexico 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.

  • $10,000 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.

Clovis Car Insurance Rates by Driver Age

Certainly, you’re a better driver now than when you first began driving. Experience is one reason why more-seasoned drivers in Clovis pay less than young drivers do. Because more-mature drivers drive better, they are less likely to file a claim. This is evident by their car insurance rates. While insurance costs fluctuate from $128 to $200 per month for drivers ages 20 and above, teens shoulder the highest rates among all drivers, at $267. Clovis motorists in their 70s pay the least.

Driver's AgeAvg. Monthly Cost
teens$268
20s$201
30s$245
40s$142
50s$202
60s$160
70s$129
80s$123

Clovis Car Insurance Rates by Driving and Accident History

It makes no sense to drive dangerously if you want to keep your insurance costs down in Clovis. While insurance companies reward clean drivers with low rates, policies are higher for drivers they suspect will make a future claim. Drivers with a failure-to-stop violation pay $520 on average for car insurance. By comparison, the clean-record crowd pays just $200. How are car insurance companies made aware of your mistakes? They review your motor vehicle record (MVR) when you establish your policy and when you renew.

Driving HistoryAvg. Monthly Cost
No Violation$201
Speeding Ticket$211
At-Fault Accident$278
Failure to Stop for Red Light / Stop Sign$521

Clovis Car Insurance Rates by Credit Tier

If you thought your credit rating was between you and the credit card company, think again. Car insurance companies consider credit when calculating your insurance rates. It’s not necessarily how much credit you have but how you use it that matters to them. People who manage their money wisely (like paying their bills on time or keeping their debt-to-income ratio in check) pay less for car insurance than people who don’t. In Clovis, motorists with poor credit pay an average of $191. In comparison, premiums for those with excellent credit average out to $135.

Credit TierAvg. Monthly Cost
Excellent$136
Good$232
Average$201
Poor$205
