What are Hawaii’s auto insurance minimum requirements?

Hawaii state minimum liability insurance is 20/40/10. This means Hawaii drivers must have at least the following amounts of liability car insurance:

  • $20,000 per person of bodily injury liability coverage
  • $40,000 per accident of bodily injury liability coverage
  • $10,000 per occurrence of property damage liability coverage

Hawaii insurance law also requires drivers to have at least $10,000 per person of personal injury protection (PIP). This coverage pays for medical and rehabilitative costs.

Hawaii no-fault insurance

Hawaii is a “no-fault” state. This means your car insurance provider pays for injuries to you and your passengers up to your PIP limit after an accident, regardless of who caused it.

No-fault insurance laws only apply to injuries. As such, if you cause an accident, you may still need to pay for damages to other vehicles or property.
