Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in Oklahoma

All motor vehicles operated or parked on Oklahoma 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 Oklahoma[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. Oklahoma 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.

  • $25,000 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.

Tulsa Car Insurance Rates by Driver Age

As the average car insurance rates in Tulsa demonstrate, younger drivers cost more to insure. The twentysomething crowd pays on average $257 in car insurance monthly—a full $67 more a month than their grandparents in their 60s. This cost difference can be partly attributed to the fact that with maturity comes wisdom (and fewer accidents). It is also because people in their 60s, on average, includes retirees who are also on the road less (which can equate to fewer accidents as well).

Tulsa Car Insurance Rates by Driving and Accident History

Tulsa drivers can enjoy their best insurance rates if they keep their record clear of accidents and other driving offenses (like running a red light or speeding). In fact, Tulsa’s clean-record crowd pays an average of $196 a month for car insurance. Compare this to a Tulsa driver with an at-fault accident on their record, and average monthly insurance rates skyrocket by 40 percent. This is one reason why drivers sometimes seek insurance companies that offer accident forgiveness—a program that “forgives” the first accident and prevents a spike in insurance rates.

FAQs - Tulsa, OK Car Insurance

  • In Oklahoma, you can apply to the Oklahoma Tax Commission for a classic vehicle license plate if your vehicle is 25 years old based on the date of manufacture. In general, you’ll also need to submit proof of liability insurance to register your vehicle unless it is not being operated on public streets or highways. If this is the case, you can complete an affidavit of non-use as part of the application process.

  • Besides keeping the best driving record that you can, you’ll find that insurers offer lots of discounts to get your policy down to a reasonable price. Some of these discounts include good student discounts, driver’s education discounts, and having a good credit score. What’s most important is that you are able to find and take advantage of all the discounts available to you. Another good way to save money on your insurance policy is to obey all traffic laws. Although accidents aren’t always avoidable, following the speed limit and keeping the rules of the road top of mind every time you get in your vehicle are the best ways to keep your driving record clean.

  • For racers and other car aficionados, adding elements here and there to make their ride more exciting is always fun. However, you should never assume that the modifications you’ve made to your car will be covered by your current insurance. Plus, if you don’t disclose modifications, your insurer has the right to cancel your coverage. Always be up-front with your insurer any time you decide to trick out your ride. If not, you could end up paying out of pocket for your claim—which really stings after all the money and work you’ve already invested in your vehicle.
