Drivers with good driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Kansas drivers without a recent moving violation typically save 16% on their car insurance premiums, near the national average of 17%. In addition to earning a cheaper premium for driving incident-free, you may qualify for a safe-driving bonus through your car insurance company. The amount of these discounts may vary, but they typically run between 5 and 10%.
|Rating Factor||$ Savings||% Savings|
|No Traffic Tickets||$283||16.56%|
Young drivers (those between the ages of 16 and 25) pay extraordinarily high auto insurance rates, with those aged 16-19 paying the most expensive premiums of all. Because of the risk presented by inexperienced drivers, teens pay more than three times the national average for car insurance. Kansas is a relatively affordable state for teen drivers: the typical teen driver pays $4,139 per year — about $800 less than the national average for teens, but still far more than the Kansas driver average across all age groups.

If you have a clean driving record — no at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, or other recent citations — you'll probably pay less for car insurance. Conversely, a bad driving record will cause your rates to skyrocket: car insurance premiums typically increase by 24% after a DUI, 26% after an at-fault accident, and 16% after a speeding ticket in Kansas. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies in Kansas are lower than nationwide averages, especially after a DUI citation. If you have a clean driving record, be on the lookout for good-driving discounts from your insurer.

State minimum insurance requirements in Kansas
In Kansas, drivers are required to carry liability, uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage, and personal injury protection at or above the below mandatory minimums:
Personal injury Protection (PIP)
Optional coverage in Kansas (varies by carrier):
For the minimum required coverage in Kansas, expect to owe an average of $480 per year. This is cheaper than the U.S. average by 27%. If you elect better coverage, you can select a policy with comprehensive and collision coverage, which will protect against damages incurred by car collisions, theft and vandalism, or weather incidents. Better coverage comes with a cost: in Kansas, a comprehensive policy with a $1,000 deductible costs $1,199, 150% more than basic insurance coverage. For a comprehensive policy with a $500 deductible, expect to pay 198% more than you would for basic coverage.
It's worth noting that Kansas is a no-fault state.
A no-fault insurance laws system requires drivers to carry their own protection. When an accident happens, no matter who is at fault, your own insurance foots the bill. Each driver takes care of their own damages, theoretically reducing the chances of a party suing over culpability. As a bonus, it guarantees every driver immediate medical treatment in the event of an accident.

If you receive a ticket or citation, your car insurance premiums will probably rise. By how much depends on the specific citation, your car insurance company's pricing standards, and local insurance regulations. That's why tickets may have a different impact on insurance in your state compared to the national average.
