Car Insurance Requirements in Hermiston, Oregon

While driving in Hermiston, you are required to have proof of auto insurance or other financial responsibility either on your person or in your car. Failure to provide this proof to a police officer may result in a fine and license and registration suspension.

All car owners in the Beaver State are required to carry auto insurance that meets the state's mandated minimum limits. In Oregon, the minimum car requirements are as follows:

  • Bodily Injury Liability Coverage: $25,000 per person / $50,000 per accident
  • Property Damage Liability Coverage: $20,000 per accident
  • Uninsured Motorist Bodily Injury (UMBI) Coverage: $25,000 per person / $50,000 per accident
  • Personal Injury Protection (PIP): $15,000 per person

Keep in mind that these are just the state requirements. Liability insurance will provide coverage for damages or injuries if you're considered at-fault in a collision. And uninsured motorist insurance will offer you coverage if you're involved in an incident with a driver that doesn't carry sufficient coverage.

However, these coverages won't offer you financial protection if your vehicle is damaged under other circumstances, so we recommend considering other forms of auto insurance in addition to these minimums. Comprehensive and collision insurance, for instance, provides protection if your vehicle is stolen or damaged in a variety of events, such as if you hit a deer or elk on the road in Hermiston.
