Minimum coverage requirements for North Dakota drivers

North Dakota requires all drivers to carry car insurance that meets or exceeds specific coverage limits. The average cost of minimum coverage auto insurance in North Dakota is $374 per year. Minimum insurance policies must include the following:

Most financial experts and car insurance professionals recommend clients carry considerably more coverage than the minimum amount required by law. Liability coverage only covers the cost to another driver’s person or property, leaving you to cover the cost of your own vehicle’s repairs if you are found responsible for the accident. The cost of an accident — especially a serious one — can quickly add up to hundreds of thousands of dollars in many cases when you consider medical expenses. While full coverage limits may vary by company, in North Dakota, full coverage costs an average of $1,749 per year.

Cheapest car insurance in North Dakota for full coverage

Full coverage refers to your state's minimum required insurance plus optional collision and comprehensive coverage. These coverage types help pay for damage to your own car following a covered accident or other vehicle incident.

Moving violations such as tickets, an at-fault accident or a DUI typically lead to higher premium rates until the infraction drops off your record.

Bankrate’s take: If you have a DUI conviction on your license, you have already dealt with civil penalties and may have seen your insurance premium rates increase. In some cases, however, you may have to switch to another carrier altogether. Some insurance companies, like State Farm, will not write policies for drivers with a DUI. If you are insured with one of these companies and are convicted of DUI, you should start shopping for a new policy immediately.

Cheapest car insurance for young drivers in North Dakota

If you have a young driver in your family or you are a teen driver, it may be more challenging to find cheap car insurance in North Dakota. Because less experienced drivers are more likely to be involved in a serious accident, insurance companies often raise their rates until about age 25.

Cheapest North Dakota car insurance for insuring a teen driver: North Star Mutual

Teen drivers typically face some of the highest average premiums of any driving demographic because of their inexperience, which may lead to a higher likelihood of being involved in an accident. In general, young drivers are cheaper to insure on a parent's policy than on their own, and most often, drivers younger than 18 must typically be on a parent's policy. Teen drivers can save money, however, by looking for insurers who have teen discounts and discounts for students. They are also most likely to earn affordable rates if they have a clean driving record with no infractions.

Bankrate’s take: Teens lack driving extensive experience and are also more likely to engage in risky behaviors such as texting while driving, which causes insurers to put them in a high-risk category. In the interest of minimizing their own financial risk, insurers often issue higher rates for individuals who are more likely to file claims. As a result, young drivers are often charged more until they are older or have a proven safe driving record. Our rates above for insuring a teen reflect the cost of a 16-year-old driver added to their married parents’ policy.

Cheapest North Dakota car insurance for teens with a ticket: Nodak

As is true for adults, a teen who earns a speeding ticket will typically see an increase in their premium rate at renewal. In North Dakota, Nodak offers the lowest average premium for a teen with a ticket for minimum coverage. The rates below are based on an 18-year-old driver on their own policy.

Cheapest North Dakota car insurance for teens with an at-fault accident: Nodak

Bankrate’s take: If you have a teen driver on your policy, you may want to consider adding optional accident forgiveness coverage if your carrier offers it. Many insurers automatically increase premium rates for policyholders who have been in an accident. An accident forgiveness endorsement "forgives" one accident so that the rate does not increase following the first at-fault collision. There may be some restrictions on this coverage, so ask your insurance agent if it might be a good choice for you.

A DUI may be the most serious moving violation for a driver to earn.

The rates below are based on a 21-year-old driver on their own policy.

Methodology

Bankrate utilizes Quadrant Information Services to analyze June 2024 rates for all ZIP codes and carriers in all 50 states and Washington, D.C. Rates are weighted based on the population density in each geographic region. Quoted rates are based on a single, 40-year-old male and female driver with a clean driving record, good credit and the following full coverage limits:

  • $100,000 bodily injury liability per person
  • $300,000 bodily injury liability per accident
  • $50,000 property damage liability per accident
  • $100,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per person
  • $300,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury per accident
  • $500 collision deductible
  • $500 comprehensive deductible

To determine minimum coverage limits, Bankrate used minimum coverage that meets each state’s requirements. Our base profile drivers own a 2022 Toyota Camry, commute five days a week and drive 12,000 miles annually.

These are sample rates and should only be used for comparative purposes.

Incidents: Rates were calculated by evaluating our base profile with the following incidents applied: clean record (base), at-fault accident, single speeding ticket and single DUI conviction.

Teens: Rates were determined by adding a 16-year-old teen to their 40-year-old married parents' policy. The rates displayed reflect the total cost of a driver this age added to their parents’ policy.

Age: Rates were calculated by evaluating our base profile with the ages 18 and 21 applied. Drivers are renters on their own policy. Age is not a contributing rating factor in Hawaii and Massachusetts due to state regulations.
