Houston Car Insurance Requirements

Auto liability insurance is a type of car insurance coverage that's required by law in Texas, so Houston drivers must have it.

More specifically, the following liability coverages are the minimum required in Houston:

  • $30,000 bodily injury liability limit per person
  • $60,000 bodily injury liability limit per accident
  • $25,000 property damage liability

Uninsured/Underinsured motorist coverage, collision1 and comprehensive1 coverage are not required for Houston drivers. In Texas, no-fault/personal injury protection insurance coverage is optional.

All coverages are subject to the coverage limits stated in your policy.

1Although Texas law does not require drivers to carry this coverage, it may be required by your lender if you are leasing or financing your vehicle.
