California Department of Motor Vehicle website states drivers are required to maintain a minimum liability car insurance limit of 15000/30000/5000.
Failure to do so can result in your driver license being suspended and an sr22 filing being required.
Minimum liability car insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in California is:
$15,000 for injury/death to one person.
$30,000 for injury/death to more than one person.
$5,000 for damage to property.
Financial responsibility is required on any vehicle operated or parked on California roadways and you must carry proof of financial responsibility (car insurance id card) in your vehicle at all times and must be provided as specified below:
* When requested by law enforcement.
* When renewing vehicle registration.
* When the vehicle is involved in a traffic collision.
The penalties and fines for driving without car insurance in California are severe. Drivers caught driving without car insurance can have their license suspended which results in higher car insurance premiums and needing the sr22 form filing.
