What is auto insurance?
Auto insurance protects you from financial loss in the event of an accident. Your Missouri auto insurance policy is a contract between you and your insurance company which says that you agree to pay the premium and the insurance company agrees to pay for any losses or damages — as outlined in your policy.
Is it illegal to drive without Missouri auto insurance?
Yes. Missouri's Motor Vehicle Financial Responsibility Law requires Missourians to pay for another person's injuries and damages in the event of a collision. If you are unable to pay for these damages, your punishment can range from losing your driver's license to a criminal conviction and time in jail.
Thus, Missouri requires all drivers to carry liability insurance with coverage extending to the following areas:
Who is covered under my Missouri auto insurance policy?
The Missouri State Department of Insurance states that the person named in the policy, that person's spouse, family members living in the household and any other person given permission to use the car are covered under the policy, but it is always best to check with your agent as some policies differ.
How much auto coverage do I need?
Before purchasing your Missouri auto insurance, ask yourself:
Remember that motorists injured because of your negligence can sue for more than your policy covers. You will want to consider this when purchasing your Missouri auto insurance. You will want to compare quotes and consider higher limits of coverage.
How will my Missouri auto insurance rates be determined?
Your agent will figure your insurance rate based on the following information:
The latter is the largest factor in determining your rates, so take the extra effort to drive safely.
