Fair car insurance in Kentucky

From Lexington to Louisville and Owensboro to Paducah, you can now get cheap auto insurance with Root. Download the app to get started. If you’re a good driver, you could save hundreds on your car insurance.

How it works

Most auto insurance companies base your rate on your demographic data. Demographics include your age, marital status, and ZIP code. We don’t think that’s a fair way to price car insurance. That’s why Root bases your auto insurance rate primarily on how you drive, and not where you live.

State requirements for Kentucky car insurance

What are the state minimum requirements for auto insurance in Kentucky?

Kentucky  drivers are required to carry Liability insurance—both Bodily Injury and Property Damage, which can be combined into Single Limit Liability (SLL) coverage. Kentucky also requires drivers to carry Personal Injury Protection (PIP), or no-fault insurance.

Liability coverage

Liability coverage helps to pay for property damage or bodily injuries that occur from a car accident you cause. It doesn’t cover you or your family members—that’s why medical coverage like PIP is required. Liability also doesn’t cover your vehicle (but Collision and Comprehensive coverages do). 

Minimum Liability insurance in KY:

  • $25,000 Bodily Injury (per person)

  • $50,000 Bodily Injury (per accident–multiple people injured)

  • $10,000 Property Damage

You can always choose to select higher limits.

Personal Injury Protection

No-fault car insurance—also called Personal Injury Protection (PIP)—covers your household family members and your medical costs after an accident, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Claims against the at-fault driver can be filed after the PIP benefits are exhausted. The minimum coverage limit is $10,000 per person.
