Car Insurance Laws in Delaware

MoneyGeek’s resources provide a detailed breakdown of how much car insurance you need in Delaware according to Delaware car insurance laws.

The minimum liability limits required by Delaware state laws are:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $50,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $10,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $15,000 personal injury protection per person
  • $30,000 personal injury protection per accident

The minimum coverage required in Delaware may not necessarily be the level of coverage you need. Delaware insurance laws only require low liability limits and do not require comprehensive and collision insurance, so a state minimum policy will offer limited protection.

Specialty Car Insurance in Delaware

Depending on your profile and needs, a specialty car insurance policy may be a better option than traditional car insurance. MoneyGeek analyzed the alternative types of car insurance in Delaware, such as non-owner car insurance, temporary car insurance and low-income car insurance.
