Fair car insurance in Nevada

Whether you’re in Las Vegas or Henderson, Reno or Carson City, Root makes car insurance easy and affordable for safe drivers in the Silver State. In fact, good drivers can save up to 52%. Now that's cheap. Download our easy-to-use app and see if your safe driving can save you money on quality coverage.

How it works

At Root, we care about how you actually drive. So that’s primarily how we base rates. Traditional auto insurance companies base your rate on things like age, credit score, marital status, and ZIP code—we don't think that's fair, so we’re doing it differently.

State requirements in Nevada

What are the state minimum requirements in Nevada?

Legally operating a vehicle in Nevada means you must carry Liability insurance. If you’re found driving without it, you could face fines and penalties. 

You also must show proof of insurance if you’re involved in a car accident or stopped by a police officer. And the first time you register your car or renew a registration, you need to show proof, too. Nevada now accepts electronic proof of insurance, so Root policyholders always have proof of insurance in the Root app.

Liability coverage

You are required by Nevada law to carry Liability coverage in Nevada. Liability coverage helps to pay for property damage or bodily injuries that occur from a car accident you cause. It does not cover harm to you or your family members—coverages like Medical Payments serve that purpose. And if you want coverage for your vehicle, Collision and Comprehensive is available. These additional coverages beyond Liability are what can help you save a lot of money if you’re in a serious accident. Minimum required Liability coverage in NV: 

  • $25,000 Bodily Injury (per person)

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

  • $20,000 Property Damage

If you’re caught without it, you could face fines up to $1,000, reinstatement fees varying from $251 to $751, and a suspended driver’s license for a minimum of 30 days if it’s the third violation for driving without car insurance (regardless of the length of the lapse). If your lapse in required insurance is 91 days or longer, you’re required to file and keep SR-22 insurance for 3 years, too. And if you cause an accident resulting in more than $750 in damage while uninsured, you can have your driver's license and vehicle registration automatically suspended or revoked.

What is SR-22 insurance?

SR-22 insurance is required for Nevada car insurance violations of 91 days or more and may be required for other violations such as drunk driving (DUI). The SR-22 is actually not insurance–it’s proof of responsibility and a guarantee that you’ll be insured for a certain period of time. In Nevada, the SR-22 is required for 3 years following an insurance violation. Your insurance company must file it with the Nevada DMV upon your request.
