General Arizona Insurance Guidelines

Arizona state currently requires that all drivers be covered under liability insurance. Proof of insurance must always be accessible in the vehicle. Arizona drivers are required to show their insurance info when pulled over or involved in an accident.

Minimum Liability Coverage in Arizona

Arizona has the following minimum liability amounts:

  • $15,000 bodily injury per person
  • $30,000 total bodily injury per accident
  • $10,000 total property damage per accident

These are only the minimum requirements set by the state. Experts advise protecting your assets by getting more coverage than the state-mandated minimums as these limits tend not to keep pace with the ever increasing costs of car repairs and medical bills. Most drivers also add collision and comprehensive coverage to their policies to cover possible damage to their own cars as well.

Penalties for Driving Without Insurance

The penalties for driving without insurance in Arizona are:

  • Possible vehicle registration suspension or license suspension

Uninsured/Underinsured Motorist Coverage

Some states require drivers to carry UM/UIM, or uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage. This coverage protects a driver if they get in an accident where the other party does not have auto insurance. Arizona does not require UM/UIM coverage.

No-Fault Insurance

Some states have “No-Fault” laws where a policy holder will be reimbursed by their insurance company without proof of fault, and restricted in the right to seek reimbursement through the court system for losses caused by other parties. Arizona is not a “No-Fault” state.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

Some states have Personal Injury Protection or “PIP” regulations requiring drivers to carry PIP insurance. This is an extension of auto insurance that covers medical expenses, lost wages and/or other damages. Arizona does not require drivers to purchase PIP insurance.

SR-22 Requirements for Arizona

An SR-22 form is a vehicle liability insurance document to be filed with a state’s DMV as proof that a driver has the minimum required liability insurance coverage for that state. SR-22 filings are usually only required to reinstate driving privileges after an offense such as a DUI conviction, uninsured auto accident or driving without insurance. Arizona requires an SR-22 filing for driver’s license reinstatement.

Arizona DUI Laws

It is illegal to operate a motor vehicle in the United States with a BAC (Blood Alcohol Content) level of 0.08% or higher. All states have driver licensing laws that state that a licensed driver has given implied consent to a field sobriety test and/or method of determining BAC. This means that a driver is required to take such tests if a law enforcement officer has reasonable grounds for administering one, with automatic penalties for refusing to comply. If BAC is determined to be above the legal level a driver will be penalized in various ways. The first DUI offense penalties for Arizona are:

  • $250 DUI Base Fine
  • $200 Arizona DUI Surcharge
  • $10 Probation Surcharge
  • $500 Prison Construction Assessment
  • $500 Arizona Xtra DUI Assessment
  • 1 to 10 days imprisonment
  • 90- to 360-day license suspension
  • Possible court-ordered installation of an ignition interlock device at the offender's expense
