The liability insurance will include the medical and auto repair costs. The maximum coverage for the medical costs is $25,000 if one person is involved in the car accident. If multiple passengers are injured, the liability insurance will provide coverage of up to $50,000. In addition, the company can grant a compensation worth up to $25,000 for property damage.

Since the medical bills and repairing costs increase quickly as time passed by, you should buy the car insurance policy greater than the minimum amount.

The collision car insurance offers coverage for the repair cost in the event that the vehicle is damaged in the accident. It will provide compensation of the repair costs to the owner if the amount is less than the Kelly blue book value. Given the repair costs is greater than the book value of the car, the company will pay the owner for the full cash value of the car.

Uninsured car insurance will protect you in the event that you are involved in an accident caused by an uninsured individual. Many states don’t obligate their residents to purchase car insurance.

Tips to Save on Oklahoma Car Insurance

Car insurance in Oklahoma can be expensive. There are a number of things which you can do to lower the car insurance premium.

Driving safely on the road can help to lower the car insurance rate. If you frequently violate the traffic rules or get involved in accident, you will accumulate higher traffic points. The higher the traffic points, the higher the car insurance premium will be. High traffic points indicate that you have bad driving skill and can result in the revoking of your license. Some insurance company will refuse to offer coverage for people that get involved in traffic accidents frequently.

You can participate in a driving class to improve your driving skill. The driving class should be a course that is approved by the Department of Public Safety. By participating in a driving course, your accumulated points can be reduced over time. For each course which you enrolled, you will be able to reduce two points which can last for a period of 24 months.

Besides, you can equip your car with safety features. Older cars will be charged with a lower premium. Newer car can benefit from low premium rate by installing additional safety features. Some of the safety features which you can consider installing include air bags, global positioning system (GPS) and break lock. When the car has more safety features, it will have a higher resale value. As a result, the cost for the car insurance premium will be lowered.
