Car Insurance Laws in Hawaii

Hawaii drivers need to follow Hawaii’s car insurance laws and requirements in order to legally drive in the state. Car insurance laws in Hawaii require drivers to carry the minimum amount of coverage as detailed below:

  • $20,000 in bodily injury per person
  • $40,000 in bodily injury per accident
  • $10,000 in property damage
  • $10,000 in personal injury protection

In Hawaii, you are permitted to drive with car insurance that meets the lowest required liability insurance coverage and personal injury protection coverage. However, the required coverage offers the least amount of protection. Hawaii only mandates low liability limits and doesn’t require comprehensive and collision insurance.
