If you qualify for coverage with USAA, you should definitely get a quote. The company has the cheapest rates by far in the state — just $294 per year and $24 per month — but it is only available to drivers who have served in the military and their family members.

Minimum coverage car insurance policies in Missouri include liability coverage and uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage. Liability coverage pays for the other driver's injuries or property damage; uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage pays for your injuries if you are harmed in an accident with an uninsured driver.

This means that minimum coverage in Missouri does not cover your own vehicle if it is damaged in an accident, vandalized or stolen. Furthermore, the state minimum liability limits may not fully protect all of your at-risk assets.

USAA is excluded from rankings because it is only available to current and former military members and their families.

Cheapest company for full coverage: State Farm

The average cost of a full coverage policy in Missouri is $2,531 per year, but State Farm provided a quote for our 30-year-old sample driver that was nearly half as expensive — $1,397 annually and $116 monthly.

American Family and Shelter — whose rates for our profile driver were $1,822 and $2,214, respectively — also provided quotes below the state average, so they could be good alternative options.

Insurer
Annual cost
Monthly cost
State Farm$1,397$116
American Family$1,822$152
Shelter$2,214$185
Missouri average$2,531$211

Full coverage policies include the state-mandated liability and uninsured motorist coverages, as well as comprehensive and collision coverage. Collision coverage pays for damages to your own car after an accident, while comprehensive coverage pays for non-crash incidents, such as animal or weather damage. We recommend that you consider a full coverage policy if your car is worth more than a few thousand dollars. It will prevent you from having to pay out of pocket for costly repairs if your car sustains damage.

Cheap car insurance for drivers with prior incidents

You'll pay more for full coverage auto insurance in Missouri if you have incidents on your driving record. Insurers set rates based on the risk you pose, and they view previous incidents as a sign of increased risk. Recognizing this, we identified the cheapest full coverage insurance for drivers who have:

Cheapest car insurance for people with a speeding ticket: State Farm

State Farm also offers the cheapest rates to Missouri drivers who received a ticket for driving above the speed limit. Average rates for full coverage in Missouri are $3,079 annually and $257 monthly — almost double State Farm's price of $1,514 annually and $126 monthly.

Insurer
Annual cost
Monthly cost
State Farm$1,514$126
American Family$2,162$180
Shelter$2,507$209
Missouri average$3,079$257

Of the three incidents in our study, speeding tickets raised average rates the least. Missouri drivers pay 22% more after a speeding ticket, compared to 42% more after an at-fault accident and 43% more after a DUI (driving under the influence) citation.

However, different insurers penalize these incidents in different ways. State Farm, for instance, charged identical rates for a DUI and a speeding ticket but raised rates more sharply for an at-fault accident. By contrast, Progressive charged our sample driver a higher rate after a speeding ticket than after a DUI, while Shelter charged more after a DUI than after a ticket.

We recommend that you shop around for insurance if your driving record changes. Insurance companies handle incidents on your driving record differently, which means you could get a better rate elsewhere.

Cheapest car insurance for drivers with a DUI: State Farm

State Farm$1,514$126
Progressive$2,760$230

State Farm is your best bet for affordable coverage if you've received a DUI citation.

Cheapest car insurance for young drivers: State Farm

As one of the most accident-prone demographics, young drivers pose a significant risk to insurers — and pay for it. The average cost of full coverage auto insurance for our sample 18-year-old Missouri driver is $6,511 annually, almost $4,000 more than what our sample adult driver was charged.

State Farm offers teen drivers in Missouri the best rates for both full and minimum coverage. Annual policies cost $984 less for full coverage and $316 less for minimum coverage than the next-cheapest option. Start your search with State Farm for both kinds of coverage, and then consider Allstate, the second-most affordable option for minimum coverage, or Shelter, the second-most affordable option for full coverage.

N/AUSAA$1,871$643
N/AMissouri average$6,511$2,339

USAA is excluded from rankings because it is only available to current and former military members and their families.

Young drivers also pay far more than adult drivers for minimum coverage. Our analysis found that the average cost for minimum coverage is more than triple for teens compared to adults.

Teen drivers and their parents looking to maximize their savings often choose minimum coverage policies because of their comparative affordability; however, Value Penguin recommends full coverage for most young drivers. Because teens are more likely to get into an accident, they're also more likely to need the collision coverage that comes as part of a full coverage policy. Families can reduce their premiums by adding their teen to a parent's policy rather than having them take out their own, and teens with good grades can often get reduced rates.

The exception to this rule is if a teen drives a car whose total worth is less than what you would pay to insure it over the course of an annual policy. In instances like this, minimum coverage makes the most sense.

Cheapest for young drivers with one accident: State Farm

If young drivers pay high rates, young drivers who have been in an at-fault accident pay even higher rates — more than $2,000 higher, according to our analysis of quotes from Missouri insurers.

We recommend State Farm to Missouri teens who have been involved in an at-fault accident. At $4,967 annually, the price tag for full coverage is anything but cheap — but compared to the $18,341 charged by Auto Club, the most expensive insurer in our study, State Farm's rates are relatively affordable.

Insurer
Annual cost
Monthly cost
State Farm$4,967$414
Shelter$6,498$542
Allstate$6,720$560
Missouri average$8,591$716

Cheapest for young drivers with one speeding ticket: State Farm

Speeding tickets cause the cost of insurance to go up, though not as dramatically as for an at-fault accident. ValuePenguin found that the average rate for a teen driver in Missouri with a speeding ticket is $7,469 annually, which is $1,138 more than the average rate for a teen driver with a clean record.

State Farm again offered the best rates to our sample teen driver, charging $4,565 annually and $380 monthly for full coverage. That's over $1,000 cheaper than the second-most affordable insurer, Shelter.

Best auto insurance companies in Missouri

In terms of overall customer satisfaction and customer service, USAA is the best insurance company in Missouri, according to our survey of current customers. Coming in as a close second is American Family — which actually had the highest overall percentage of customers who said they were "extremely satisfied" with their most recent claim.

Overall rank takes both overall satisfaction and customer service rankings into account.

American Family and USAA also received a relatively low number of customer complaints, as indicated by their complaint indices from the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). A complaint index of 1.00 means that an insurer received an average number of complaints for its size, so American Family and USAA's scores indicate they respectively received about one-half and one-third fewer complaints than expected.

If you'd prefer to work with a smaller insurer, Shelter could be a solid choice. Not only are its prices comparatively affordable, but its Complaint Index from the NAIC was just 0.51. Farmers also did well with the NAIC, with a slightly lower Complaint Index of 0.49.

Average car insurance cost in Missouri by city

When calculating your rates, Missouri insurance companies consider where you live in addition to your age, credit score and driving history.

We found that insurance rates for full coverage can vary by more than $1,600 a year depending on what Missouri city you live in. Rates are cheapest in Taos, with insurers charging just $2,186 on average, while residents of Bellefontaine Neighbors pay the most, with average annual rates of $3,790.

Methodology

We collected thousands of rates from ZIP codes across Missouri for the largest 10 insurers. We used a sample driver with the following profile:

  • 30-year-old man
  • Drives a 2015 Honda Civic EX
  • Average credit

The base policy for the study was a full-coverage policy with the following limits:

Coverage type
Study limits
Bodily liability$50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident
Personal injury protection$10,000
Property damage$25,000 per accident
Uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury$50,000 per person/$100,000 per accident
Comprehensive and collision$500 deductible

For our minimum-coverage policy, we quoted a policy with the minimum required limits in Missouri, above.

For other rates analyses (age, credit score, accident history and marriage status) the base policy listed above was alternated to reflect the new driver.
