North Carolina law requires all vehicles with a valid North Carolina registration to have continuous car insurance that is provided by an insurance company licensed to do business in the state. The law also requires coverage for the following: minimum bodily injury property damage limits, and uninsured or underinsured motorists.
The bare financial coverage is as follows:
- Bodily Injury (one person) - $30,000
- Bodily Injury (two or more people) - $60,000
- Property Damage - $25,000
North Carolina strictly enforces their insurance laws, and your insurance company is required to notify the state if insurance has been canceled or if coverage lapses. If you’re caught driving without insurance, the penalties and fees can be extremely costly.
