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%.

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.

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%

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.

Compare average rates for basic, better, and best coverage levels in the table below.

LocationLiability-OnlyComprehensive — $1,000 DeductibleComprehensive — $500 Deductible
Oklahoma$693.34$1,384.39$1,566.35

Car Insurance Laws

State minimum insurance requirements in Oklahoma

In Oklahoma, the state minimum coverage requirement is liability with limits of:
  • Bodily Injury $25,000 per person
  • Bodily Injury $50,000 per accident
  • Property Damage $25,000 per accident
Optional coverage in Oklahoma (varies by carrier):
  • Comprehensive
  • Collision
  • Loan/Lease Payoff
  • Medical and Funeral Services
  • Rental Car Reimbursement
  • Roadside Assistance
  • Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury

Liability coverage is legally required in Oklahoma and pays for injury and lost wages that you cause to another driver or their passengers as well as damage to the other driver’s vehicle in the event that you are considered “at fault” in an accident. The coverage limits are determined by each individual state and normally split into three categories. In Oklahoma, the minimum is listed as 25/50/25 and explained below:

  • $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for a single person that you injure in an auto accident.
  • $50,000 bodily injury coverage per accident. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for all injuries that you cause in an accident if more than one person is hurt.
  • $25,000 property damage per accident. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for damage that you cause in an accident.

These numbers reflect the minimum limits required in Oklahoma but higher coverage amounts are available with most companies.
