South Dakota Auto Insurance Information

South Dakota law requires you to show proof of what's called "financial responsibility" in order to license and operate a motor vehicle within the state. This simply means you must have the resources to pay for any damages in an accident that's your fault.

Most South Dakotans choose to purchase South Dakota auto insurance to fulfill this responsibility.

If you are stopped by a police officer for a moving violation and you aren't carrying proof of South Dakota auto insurance, you may be subject to a fine, lose your driver's license for 30 days, and even be given jail time.

The Minimums

You must carry certain amounts of South Dakota auto insurance in order to meet the state's minimum requirements.

This includes liability, which pays for injuries you cause to another person, or property damage you cause through negligent driving; uninsured motorist, which covers your own bodily injury when involved in a hit-and-run accident, or when hit by a driver who is at fault but holds no insurance; and underinsured motorist, which pays the difference between your uninsured motorist coverage and the at-fault driver's liability coverage.

Liability includes bodily injury coverage of $25,000 per person per accident and $50,000 per accident, and property damage of at least $25,000 per accident. The law also requires uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage for your own protection.

In order to fully protect yourself, it is wise to consider buying higher limits of South Dakota auto insurance than what the state requires. These minimums may not be enough to provide adequate finances for medical bills incurred as the result of an accident, cover the total value of your car, or protect you from lawsuits.

The Facts:

  1. Statistics show that drivers under the age of 30 have more accidents than the remainder of the population. Thus, younger drivers (and households containing younger drivers) tend to have higher South Dakota auto insurance premiums.
  2. The more you drive your car, the higher your rates will be. This includes both miles driven to and from work and those driven for "pleasure."
  3. Married couples have fewer accidents than single persons. Rates reflect this difference.
  4. The more South Dakota auto insurance claims you have had, the higher your rates. Most companies apply a surcharge to drivers who have a history of accidents.
  5. A high number of accidents or a high crime rate in your area can raise your comprehensive premiums. South Dakota auto insurance companies are allowed to base premium rates on addresses, even though you may drive to other areas.
  6. South Dakota auto insurance companies frequently use your credit history to figure your insurance premiums. Your credit history helps determine your level of claims risk, and insurers believe there is a direct link between financial stability and this risk.
  7. You may be assigned an insurance score based on your credit history, which may then be used in deciding whether to accept or decline your coverage, and to set your car insurance rates.

Don't get stuck—get going!

Don't let yourself get stuck in a bad situation without the South Dakota auto insurance you need.
