Vermont Car Insurance Requirements for Drivers

While SafeAuto® does not currently offer coverage in Vermont, we can help you find the Vermont car insurance coverage you desire.  

If your home is in Burlington, Bennington or anywhere in between, SafeAuto® wants to help you find auto coverage that can meet your needs.   A good starting point is understanding the minimum requirements for liability insurance in Vermont:

Vermont’s Financial Responsibility law requires you to maintain liability limits of
at least

  • $25,000 because of bodily injury to or death of one person in any one accident
  • $50,000 because of bodily injury to or death of two or more persons in any one accident, subject to the $25,000 per person limit
  • $10,000 because of injury to or destruction of property of others in an accident

Such coverage is often written as 25/50/10 or 25,000/50,000/10,000.

Vermont Proof of Financial Responsibility & Penalties

Under Vermont law, you are required to provide documentary proof of Financial Responsibility when registering your vehicle or at the request of law enforcement officials.

If you are unable to produce proof of liability coverage when requested, the penalties can be harsh, with fines beginning at $250.

In addition to statutory penalties, if you cannot show proof of financial responsibility, fail to pay a judgment entered against you for damages resulting from an automobile accident, or need to reinstate your license after conviction for certain types of violations, you will be required to obtain an
SR-22 Certificate of Financial Responsibility.  

So, while
SafeAuto® does not currently offer coverage in the Green Mountain State, we can help you find the affordable Vermont auto insurance you need.
