In North Dakota, you’re required to have coverage for bodily injury liability, property damage liability and uninsured/underinsured motorist insurance. Depending on your circumstances, you may wish to consider purchasing additional liability insurance and comprehensive and collision insurance.


Understand North Dakota car insurance requirements

To find out how much car insurance you need, you can take a look at North Dakota’s minimum car insurance requirements. You’ll find that the minimum car insurance you’re required by law to have includes 25/50/25 liability coverage and uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, along with personal injury protection (PIP).

In other words, that’s $25,000 per person for bodily injury, $50,000 per accident for bodily injury, $25,000 per accident for property damage. The uninsured/underinsured covers $25,000 per person and $50,000 per accident for bodily injury. PIP covers $30,000.

Consider increasing your liability limits if you want more protection. North Dakota law doesn’t require you to buy comprehensive and collision insurance, which covers damages to your vehicle.


Consider Purchasing Additional Liability Insurance

You may also want to consider liability insurance above the North Dakota minimums for protection against the costs of a major accident. If you think you need higher liability insurance, you can look at the prices to help you decide. Minimum liability insurance in North Dakota costs an average of $360 per year. The cost to increase your bodily injury liability to $300,000 is $390.


Decide whether or not to buy comprehensive and collision insurance

Although North Dakota law doesn’t mandate drivers to have comprehensive and collision insurance, you can decide if you [need a full coverage policy](https://www.moneygeek.com/insurance/auto/what-is-full-coverage-comprehensive-collision-insurance/#do-you-need-full-coverage). Lenders sometimes require full coverage if you’re leasing or financing the purchase of your car.

In North Dakota, adding comprehensive and collision coverage with a $1,000 deductible costs an average of $362 per year. If you’re paying hundreds of dollars more every year to insure a car with an extremely low replacement value, you may wish to forgo this add-on.


Consider buying additional protection besides these core coverages

Drivers in North Dakota with a minimum coverage policy are also covered for up to $30,000 for personal injury protection in medical costs and lost wages.
