Car Insurance Requirements in Gaffney, South Carolina

All drivers in Gaffney are required to carry proof of auto insurance or financial responsibility either with you or in your vehicle. Failure to provide this proof to a police officer may result in a fine of $200 and license and registration suspension.

Drivers in the Palmetto State must have auto insurance policies that meet the state's minimum requirements. 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. But, if you want auto insurance that will provide coverage in the event that you're injured or your vehicle is damaged in a wider variety of circumstances, you'll need to add additional coverages to your policy. Comprehensive and collision insurance, for instance, provides protection if your vehicle is stolen or damaged in a nonvehicular collision event, such as if you hit a deer on the road in Gaffney.
