Minnesota Auto Insurance FAQs
What happens if I drive without auto insurance in Minnesota?
If you’re pulled over and found to be driving without insurance, this can result in fines, penalties, or even the suspension of your driver’s license. If your car is damaged or you’re in an accident, the consequences can be even more severe. This is why the state mandated minimum includes liability insurance for both bodily injury and property damage.
Is auto insurance expensive?
At Truax & Associates Insurance Agencies, we work with a wide variety of insurance providers, many of whom offer discounts on their premiums. There are many variables in your control that can save you money, such as safe driving, bundling multiple policies, discounts for students, and even access to special offers on anti-theft devices. Our team will evaluate your needs and budget to make the best possible recommendation.
What happens if I get in an accident?
If you get into an accident with your motor vehicle, the first course of action is making sure you get to a safe space and call 911. Whether you’re on the side of the road or out on the lake with your boat, take care of your own security first and make sure to exchange information with any other parties involved in the accident. Next, take pictures and videos if possible to help document the time and nature of the scene of the accident. This can be crucial for proving your side of the story and having evidence of what occurred. Finally, call your insurance provider and follow their instructions as they guide you through the process of filing a claim.
Can I add other drivers to my own policy?
Normally, this is standard practice for auto insurance coverage. This allows you to add spouses, dependents, and other household members to your policy. However, your insurance provider will carefully review each person you are adding, so it’s important to make sure they don’t raise your premium if you’re adding someone with higher liability, such as a past of reckless driving or moving violations.
