Virginia State Fun Facts!

Virginia Liability Insurance

Not only is it known for being the first permanent English settlement in the United States of America, but it is also known as “The Birthplace of a Nation.”

In 1607, the United States became found in Jamestown, Virginia. Jamestown also was the first Capital for Virginia. However by 1699, the States Capital changed to Williamsburg. Only another 80 years later, in 1779, and the State Capital was changed one last time to Richmond. This was due to Governor Thomas Jefferson believing that Williamsburg was subject to more attacks from the British.

In 2022, Virginia ranked 8th place out of all 50 states with the lowest average car insurance premiums!

Virginia Liability Insurance: Full Coverage

Why stop at only liability?

Having Full Coverage means you have comprehensive and collision coverage added on your auto policy.

Comprehensive coverage protects your vehicle by covering the costs in damages done to your car from external sources such as fire, flood, tree falling, or even theft.

Collision coverage protects your vehicle by covering the costs in damages done to your vehicle when coming in contact with an object (such as a pole) or another vehicle (whether parked or moving), resulting in an accident.

Therefore, when having both of these coverages on your auto policy, you are essentially fully covered from a majority of scenarios that can cause damage to your vehicle.

However, if you have only liability then you will need to pay out of pocket for any of the expenses in damages caused to your vehicle.

Virginia Liability Insurance: Young Drivers

Unfortunately, young drivers may see a higher price for insurance amongst other drivers they know. However, this does not mean that due to the increased rates, you should not get insurance. In fact, despite the age, having liability insurance in Virginia is something every current citizen there should carry when operating a vehicle.

Just a few reasons why young drivers tend to pay more are due to:

  • They are highly likely to be involved in car accidents.
  • Them not already having a driving record built up (this comes with time of driving on the roads of course).
  • They are more likely to be distracted whether it is by their cell phone, putting on makeup/fixing hair, having the music turned up to full volume, or even eating while driving.
  • They have a lower credit score.
  • They pose a risk to Insurance Carriers, financially speaking.
  • They are more reckless when operating a vehicle. Examples include: speeding, not wearing a seatbelt, etc.

Virginia Liability Insurance: Clean Driving Record

If you have never been involved in an accident, moving violations, or adding points to your license then you should have a clean driving record.

Individuals with a clean driving record will find themselves with better rates when it comes to having auto insurance.

Insurance carriers are likely to lower the cost for having auto insurance with them since you are a low risk client. Low risk clients are considered safer drivers. This means it is more unlikely for them to be involved in an accident or to file a claim.
