Buying car insurance in Fargo, ND

North Dakota state law says that all vehicles registered in the state have the following types of minimum liability insurance:

  • Bodily injury liability coverage per person: $25,000

  • Bodily injury liability coverage per accident: $50,000

  • Property damage liability coverage: $25,000

  • Personal injury protection: $30,000 maximum per person

  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage: $25,000 per person; $50,000 per accident

North Dakota is a no-fault state, which means that after a car accident, every driver must get reimbursement for their injuries from their own car insurance company, regardless of who was at fault (that’s what personal injury protection is for).

The state also follows modified comparative negligence laws, which means if you’re more than 50 percent responsible for an accident, you can’t collect any damages from the other driver. However, if you’re less than 50 percent responsible, you can collect damages, minus the percentage that you’re at fault.

How to get cheap car insurance in Fargo, ND

Making sure you’re getting all the discounts you qualify for is a great way to save on car insurance. Some of the most common car insurance discounts include:

  • Safe driver discount: For drivers who have no accidents on their claims history

  • Bundling discount: For getting your home and auto insurance policies with the same company

  • Low mileage discount: For drivers who commute less than 7,500 miles annually

  • Military discount: For active-duty service members and their families

Discounts vary by company, and you might not qualify for any of them. However, a simple way to make sure you get the cheapest car insurance rates around is by comparing quotes from top companies.

Frequently asked questions

Who has the lowest car insurance rates in Fargo?

According to our research, USAA has the lowest insurance rates in the state, at $733 per year for full coverage. But only drivers with a connection to the U.S. military will qualify for coverage with USAA, so it won’t be an option for everyone.

I heard insurance rates go down at age 25, but mine didn’t, why not?

Other factors matter beyond just your age. If you live in a neighborhood with high rates of car thefts and accidents or have a bad driving record, your insurer considers you riskier to insure and might not offer the usual price drop once you turn 25.

I got a speeding ticket, will my insurance go up?

Yes, speeding tickets often mean a price increase in car insurance. If you are insured with USAA, a single speeding ticket can increase your rates by more than $250 per year.

Methodology

Policygenius has analyzed car insurance rates provided by Quadrant Information Services for every ZIP code in all 50 states plus Washington, D.C. For full coverage policies, the following coverage limits were used:

  • Bodily injury liability: 50/100

  • Property damage liability: $50,000

  • Uninsured/underinsured motorist: 50/100

  • Comprehensive: $500 deductible

Rates for overall average rate, rates by ZIP code, and cheapest companies determined using averages for single drivers ages 30, 35, and 45. Our sample vehicle was a 2017 Toyota Camry LE driven 10,000 miles/year.

Rates for driving violations and “Poor” credit determined using average rates for a single male 30-year-old driver with a credit score under 578.

Some carriers may be represented by affiliates or subsidiaries. Rates provided are a sample of costs. Your actual quotes may differ.
