Virginia insurance requirements

Home insurance

Although Virginia law doesn’t require home insurance, most mortgage lenders will ask for it before financing your home. A standard homeowners insurance policy usually includes:

  • Structural coverage — Also known as dwelling coverage, structural coverage protects the primary physical structure of your home.
  • Personal property coverage — This coverage will help replace belongings such as furniture and electronics in the event of a covered loss.
  • Liability coverage — Personal liability coverage protects against medical and legal fees incurred by guests and visitors injured at your home.
  • Additional living expenses — Home insurance generally pays for living expenses — like a hotel or rent — if you’re displaced from your home after a covered event.

Car insurance

The state of Virginia requires car insurance to purchase license plates or decals. If you don’t carry car insurance, you must pay an Uninsured Motor Vehicle Free (currently $500). This fee does not provide insurance, but simply allows drivers to legally operate a vehicle at their own risk.

Like many other states, Virginia requires drivers to carry a minimum amount of liability coverage, which protects you if you are found to be at fault in an accident. It typically covers damage to objects and other vehicles besides your own (known as property damage liability), and injuries to other drivers and passengers they have in their car (known as bodily injury liability).

Minimum bodily injury requirements

  • $30,000 per person (will increase to $50,000 for policies effective after January 1, 2025)
  • $60,000 per accident (will increase to $100,000 for policies effective after January 1, 2025)

Minimum property damage requirements

  • $20,000 per accident (will increase to $25,000 for policies effective after January 1, 2025)

Additionally, there are optional auto insurance coverages which can provide more complete protection. Learn more about auto insurance coverage here.
