Frequently Asked Questions About Auto Insurance in 2020.
- What type of auto insurance is required in NJ? In New Jersey, you must carry two types of liability insurance, property damage, and bodily injury. These are the minimum legal insurance requirements before you can register your vehicle.
- How much coverage should I have? You can keep the minimum legal requirements only but it is easy to upgrade to more comprehensive coverage that will leave you in a better situation after a car accident, whether you are at fault or not. You can also customize your policy to fit your situation or specialized value of your vehicle.
- My teenager just started driving should I increase coverage? It would be a good idea to upgrade if you only have liability. It is a requirement to add your teen driver to your insurance, be sure to ask about honor student rates and other considerations before they get behind the wheel for that first time. Once your teen purchases their own vehicle they can also purchase their own policy and if they no longer drive your vehicle they can easily be removed from the policy.
