SR-22 Insurance in Oregon

SR-22s are issued by insurance companies to drivers who have committed serious driving offenses, such as DUIs.

Oregon Driving Facts

Every state has minimum insurance requirements, and Oregon is no exception. Additionally, all drivers in Oregon will have to visit their local DMV and may at some point need to rely on public transportation. The following sections break down minimum insurance requirements, DMV services, and public transit options in Oregon.

Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in Oregon

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

  • $20,000 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.

  • $15,000 per accident for PIP

Personal injury protection coverage, also referred to as PIP coverage, will cover the policyholder for medical payments they incur in the event of an accident. Depending on your plan, you may also receive non-medical benefits, compensating you for lost wages, household expenses, and even funeral costs.

  • $25,000 per person for uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury

  • $50,000 per accident for uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury

Uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage pays for costs caused by a driver with little or no insurance after a car accident. In Oregon, this coverage applies to bodily injury caused by uninsured drivers.

Oregon DMV Information

Oregon Driver & Motor Vehicle Services offers many important services for drivers. They issue licenses and ID cards (including the REAL ID, which you’ll need to fly), license plates, and vehicle registrations. Many of these services are available online for added convenience.

Public Transportation in Oregon

Oregon’s Public Transportation Division is hard at work supporting local and regional public transportation services. Oregon doesn’t have statewide public transportation, but many cities have their own public transportation services to help people get around. For example, Portland maintains TriMet, a transportation network that includes bus, light-rail, and commuter rail.

Oregon also has some intercity transportation options, including the POINT Intercity Bus Service, the Columbia Gorge Express, and Amtrak Cascades Passenger Rail.

How to Get the Cheapest Car Insurance in Oregon

The best and easiest way to find affordable car insurance in Oregon is to compare quotes from different insurance companies. Insurify makes it easy to compare by helping you find quotes from all the top insurers in Oregon.

Frequently Asked Questions: Cheap Car Insurance in Oregon

  • Yes, car insurance is mandatory in Oregon and all drivers must carry insurance that at least meets the state’s minimum requirements.

  • When you compare quotes, ask about discounts, too. You can often get discounts for anything from having military members in your family to getting good grades. Accepting a higher deductible can also help lower costs.

  • Car insurance costs vary. The average rate in Oregon is $203 per month, but we found policies as cheap as $74 per month. That’s why comparing quotes is so important.

  • One thing that makes car insurance rates high in Oregon is the state’s minimum requirements; Oregon requires drivers to carry more insurance than most other states. People in Oregon are also driving more, which means they’re getting into more accidents. The costs of auto repairs and healthcare coverage are both going up as well, which affects how much insurers have to pay out (and what they’ll charge to cover their services).

  • Yes, Oregon drivers must carry at least $15,000 in PIP coverage.
