Cheap Insurance for Good Drivers in Oklahoma

Drivers with good driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Oklahoma drivers without a recent at-fault accident typically save 31% on their car insurance premiums — nearly matching 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%.

Rating Factor$ Savings% Savings
No Traffic Tickets$29816.46%
No Accidents$69331.40%
Good Credit$3,11667.30%

Cheap Insurance for Young Drivers in Oklahoma

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 Oklahoma, the typical teen driver pays $5,649 per year — roughly $700 more than the national average for teens, and more than three times as much as the average Oklahoman driver.

AgeAnnual Rate with ParentsAnnual Rate Alone
16$5,779$7,433
17$5,544$6,734
18$5,404$5,923
19$4,811$3,568

Cheap Car Insurance for Bad Drivers in Oklahoma

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 30% after a DUI, 31% after an at-fault accident, and 16% after a speeding ticket in Oklahoma. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies after speeding tickets and at-fault accidents in Oklahoma align with nationwide averages, but drivers receive lower-than-average rate hikes after DUI violations. If you have a clean driving record, be sure to check for good-driving discounts from your insurer.

Rating FactorAnnual Rate% Increase
At-Fault Accident$2,20731.40%
DUI$2,16930.20%
Speeding Violation$1,81216.46%
Bad Credit$4,63067.30%

What are the Best Car Insurance Companies in Oklahoma?

Each auto insurance company emphasizes its cheap rates. But as with any product or service, the cheapest car insurance option isn't always the best choice. Considering what's at stake, it's worth doing the research to find the policy that protects your vehicle adequately after an incident. Be patient and look for a great value, rather than settling for the cheapest auto insurance you find.

Review popular insurance companies' financial strength and claims satisfaction levels to better understand the level of service you'll receive. Claims satisfaction — assigned by J.D. Power — is rated on a scale of 2 to 5, with 5 being "among the best" and 2 being "the rest." Financial strength — calculated by A.M. Best and ranging from "Superior" to "Poor" — determines an insurance company's financial stability and ability to fulfill its policy and contractual obligations.

What is the Best Auto Insurance Coverage in Oklahoma?

The required minimum insurance level in Oklahoma is $25,000 Bodily Injury per person, $50,000 Bodily Injury per accident, and $25,000 Property Damage per accident.

If you carry the minimum required coverage in Oklahoma, prepare to pay an average of $693 annually. This is pricier than the nationwide average by 5%. If you elect more comprehensive coverage, you can purchase a policy with comprehensive and collision coverage, which will protect against damages caused by vehicular collisions, auto theft, or weather incidents. However, better insurance comes at a price: in Oklahoma, a comprehensive policy with a $1,000 deductible costs $1,384, 100% more than basic liability-only coverage. For a comprehensive policy with a $500 deductible, expect to pay 126% more than you might for basic liability-only coverage.

Recent Oklahoma Car Insurance Questions and Answers

Does my wife need to be on my motorcycle insurance policy?

You do not have to have to list your wife on your motorcycle policy. If she won't be driving the motorcycle, you can have her listed as an excluded driver. If you have any questions, don't hesitate to ask.

Can I be listed on my boyfriend's car insurance?

If you both reside at the same address you should have no problem getting added to the same plan as your boyfriend. While this could possibly raise the rate that he is currently paying, it will likely come out as cheaper on the whole.

Do I need additional insurance if I am working DoorDash as a side job?

When you're delivering food, you're effectively using your vehicle for a commercial purpose. Most policies do not cover you to do a side job, such as rideshare or food delivery, without a special endorsement.

MIL dropped husband and vehicle off her policy without notifying. He was pulled over and citation given. Is he covered under our alt policy?

Sorry to hear about the situation. Unfortunately, I think your husband's failure to maintain insurance citation will still be valid.
