Cheap auto insurance for good drivers in Nevada

Drivers with clean driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Nevada drivers without a recent at-fault accident typically save 34% on their car insurance premiums — a bit better than the 32% US average. 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%.

Cheap auto insurance for young drivers in Nevada

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. In Nevada, the typical teen driver pays more than $6,200 annually, far exceeding the national average and about four times as much as a typical Nevada driver.

Cheap auto insurance for bad drivers in Nevada

If you have a good driving record — no at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, or other recent citations — you'll probably enjoy relatively cheap car insurance rates. Conversely, a bad driving record will cause your costs to skyrocket: car insurance premiums typically increase by 37% after a DUI, 34% after an at-fault accident, and 19% after a speeding ticket in Nevada. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies in Cornhusker State roughly align with national averages. If you have a clean driving history, be sure to inquire about your insurance company's safe driver discount.

At-Fault Accident$2,30434.02%

Nevada auto insurance laws

In Nevada, each driver must maintain auto insurance at or above the below levels:

  • Bodily Injury $25,000 per person
  • Bodily Injury $50,000 per accident
  • Property Damage $20,000 per accident

Optional coverage in Nevada (varies by carrier):

  • Comprehensive
  • Collision
  • Loan/Lease Payoff
  • Medical and Funeral Services
  • Rental Car Reimbursement
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Bodily Injury

If you elect the minimum coverage level in Nevada, you could owe an average of $1,128 per year. This is more costly than the national average by 72%. If you want better auto insurance coverage, you can choose a policy with comprehensive and collision coverage, which will protect against the costs of car-vs.-car accidents, theft and vandalism, or weather conditions. However, better insurance coverage has a price: in Nevada, a comprehensive insurance policy with a $1,000 deductible costs $1,677, 49% more than basic insurance coverage. For a comprehensive policy with a $500 deductible, expect to pay 59% more than for liability-only coverage.

Coverage for non-employee in commercial vehicle after accident
