Drivers with good records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Oregon drivers earn big by driving safe and avoiding at-fault accidents, cutting 36% from their car insurance bill, on average — compared to the national average of 33%. 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%.

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 Oregon, the typical teen driver pays $5,208 per year — approximately $300 more than the national average for teens, and more than three times as much as the average driver in Oregon.

The best way to minimize your auto insurance expenditure is to avoid at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, and DUIs. As insurance companies use your driving record as a way to predict the level of risk you present, keeping your driving record clean will lead to lower premiums. It's especially important to avoid at-fault accidents, speeding tickets and DUI citations in Oregon, one of the states in which insurance companies penalize poor driving most severely. In fact, a single speeding ticket could raise your car insurance rates by 19% in Oregon.

Liability coverage is legally required in Oregon 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 Oregon, the minimum is listed as 25/50/20 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.
$20,000 property damage per accident. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for damage that you cause in an accident.
Uninsured/underinsured Motorist coverage is legally required in Oregon and pays for injury and lost wages that you or your passengers may suffer in the event that you are hit by an uninsured/underinsured driver who is at fault. The coverage limits are determined by each individual state and normally split into two categories. In Oregon, the minimum is listed as 25/50 and explained below:
$25,000 bodily injury coverage per person. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for a single person injured in your vehicle by an uninsured/underinsured driver.
$50,000 bodily injury coverage per accident. This is the maximum dollar amount that pays for all injuries in your vehicle by an uninsured/underinsured driver if more than one person is hurt.
Personal Injury Protection provides coverage for medical costs that you and your passengers incur in an accident regardless of fault. PIP will cover medical expenses such as hospital bills, rehabilitation costs, and even work loss resulting from an accident. In Oregon, minimum PIP coverage of $15,000 per person is required on your policy.
These numbers reflect the minimum limits required in Oregon but higher coverage amounts are available with most companies.
If you happen to find yourself pulled over by a police officer in Oregon you won't have to rifle through your glovebox wondering if you remembered to replace that expired insurance card last month. Instead, you can provide proof of coverage with your smartphone.
Car insurance companies calculate your rate based on many factors, location of the vehicle being an important one. The cheapest car insurance is found in Medford, Oregon, and the most expensive in Gresham, Oregon.

At The Zebra, we know better than most just what a pain buying car insurance can be. We also know that students suffer from higher-than-average policy rates. Talk about a double-whammy. That’s why, this year, we’ve decided to continue The Zebra’s annual scholarship with the goal of helping to alleviate the financial pressures of college-bound students in the Oregon area, while also getting an insider view of the Beaver State.
So, Oregon students, we want to see your favorite road trip destination(s) in your state— from your unique perspective. If it makes sense to hit the open road and be our virtual tour guide, that’s great! But there are no limits to what we’re looking for: a narrated animation, a slideshow of memorabilia, an illustrated map of the best roadside attractions on the way. This is a chance for you to showcase any place you love in as an original way as possible.
