Getting car insurance in Texas
The second-largest state in the United States, Texas also features some of the most populated cities in the country — Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin and Fort Worth. The Lone Star State is known for its hot weather, barbecue, popular professional sports teams and historical sites, such as the Alamo. You'll find portions of numerous interstate highways going through the cities and farmlands taking travelers east, west or south of the border.
Finding the right car insurance for you means staying up to date on Texas requirements. The table below lists the coverages and minimum coverage limits that are required in Texas. Keep in mind, however, that minimum coverage limits are just a starting point. You may want to consider increasing your coverage limits for greater protection.

Texas' rules on electronic proof of insurance
