Car Insurance Requirements in Darlington, South Carolina

Darlington car owners are required to carry auto insurance that meets the state's mandated minimums—this requirement is consistent throughout all cities in the Palmetto State. In South Carolina, the minimum car requirements are as follows:

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

Keep in mind that these are the bare minimum. 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 who doesn't carry sufficient coverage. However, these coverages won't offer you financial protection if you're injured or 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 on the road in Darlington.

You are also required to have proof of auto insurance financial responsibility either on your person or in your car. Failure to provide this proof to a police officer may result in a fine of $200 and license and registration suspension.
