Although minimum coverage costs less usually, drivers who purchase lower liability coverage limits and forgo comprehensive and collision coverage risk having insufficient protection following an accident.

Minimum coverage auto insurance policies meet North Dakota's minimum legal requirements. Unlike full coverage policies, minimum coverage doesn't include comprehensive and collision insurance, which protects your car from damage resulting from a collision, theft, vandalism or natural disaster — regardless of who's at fault.

We always recommend drivers compare auto insurance from multiple companies.

Cheapest full coverage car insurance in North Dakota: State Farm

State Farm offers the most affordable auto insurance premium for drivers purchasing a full coverage policy. Although Progressive and Auto-Owners have lower rates than the state average, they are significantly more expensive than State Farm.

A full coverage insurance policy includes comprehensive and collision coverage, which financially protects you from the cost of certain accidents.

Collision coverage pays for damage to your car in accidents caused by colliding into another vehicle or fixed object. If you have comprehensive coverage, you're covered for damage caused by events outside of your control, such as theft and extreme weather.

Cheap car insurance for drivers with prior incidents

Drivers with a history of accidents or traffic violations usually have higher auto insurance premiums for a full coverage policy than drivers without that history. We calculated which insurers provide the most affordable rates for drivers who get a violation:

Methodology

We collected thousands of rates from ZIP codes across North Dakota for eight of the largest insurers in the state. Unless otherwise noted, 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 North Dakota, above. For other rates analyses (age, credit score, accident history and marriage status) the base policy listed above was altered to reflect the new driver.

ValuePenguin's analysis used insurance rate data from Quadrant Information Services. These rates were publicly sourced from insurer filings and should be used for comparative purposes only — your own quotes may be different.
