Car Insurance Laws in Arizona

MoneyGeek has all the resources needed to understand Arizona car insurance laws and requirements. We found that the state law requires you to have the following minimum liability coverage:

  • $15,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $30,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $10,000 property damage liability per accident

Since Arizona law does not require drivers to have comprehensive and collision insurance and also mandates low levels of liability coverage, the coverage amount you need might be different from how much coverage you should get.
