Car Insurance Laws in Arkansas

You can use MoneyGeek’s resources to understand the insurance laws and requirements in Arkansas. State law requires every driver in Arkansas to have an auto insurance policy with the following liability coverage:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability per accident

However, the coverage amount you need may be different from how much coverage is legally required since Arkansas law does not require you to have comprehensive and collision insurance and only mandates low levels of liability coverage.
