For this calculation, cheatgame.info averaged rates for 40-year-old men and women with a clean driving record and good credit. With the exception of age, a large portion of drivers are closest to this profile, which carries standard "full coverage" insurance, including state-required coverage.

Cheapest for drivers with poor credit

Drivers with poor credit in Utah might want to check out Bear River, which easily had the cheapest auto insurance quote for this group at $85 per month, on average. Geico and American Family round out the cheapest three.

Poor credit can have a bigger effect on car insurance premiums than even a DUI conviction or a recent accident. To calculate these figures, cheatgame.info averaged rates for 40-year-olds with a clean driving record, poor credit as reported to their insurer, and standard "full coverage" insurance.

Cheapest for drivers with one at-fault crash

Bear River was the cheapest carrier in our test for Utah drivers with a recent accident on-record, at $64 per month, on average. American Family came in second and State Farm was the third-cheapest.

To get these figures, we averaged rates for 40-year-olds with one recent at-fault crash and the typical "full coverage" insurance. Your rates will remain high for three to five years after you cause an accident or have a moving violation. If you fall into this category, be sure to shop for new insurance rates just after the three-year and five-year anniversaries of your infraction.

Cheapest for low-mileage drivers

Bear River was the cheapest auto insurance carrier we found for Utah drivers who clock few miles annually, at $60 per month, on average. Geico and American Family also make the list for this group.

Whether you're retired, work at home or often use public transportation, you may be able to get cheaper car insurance simply because you drive less. The rates above are for 40-year-olds with typical "full coverage" insurance and a clean driving record who drive 5,000 miles per year instead of the standard 12,000.

Cheapest for minimum coverage

For drivers who want the bare minimum auto insurance in Utah, Bear River came out the cheapest in our analysis — $31 per month, on average. Geico and Allstate come in second and third, respectively.

We calculated these numbers by averaging rates for 40-year-old good drivers who have only the minimum mandatory insurance in their state. Such light coverage isn't typically recommended, since it might not cover all the bills resulting from a car accident, but it's better than nothing — especially if you can't afford much more.

Minimum auto insurance limits required in Utah

Utah is a no-fault state; motorists must carry liability insurance and personal injury protection (PIP) in at least the following amounts:

  • $25,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person.
  • $65,000 bodily injury liability coverage per accident.
  • $15,000 property damage liability coverage per accident.
  • $3,000 PIP.

Although this will be enough to drive legally, the bare minimum car insurance might not be enough to pay costs if you cause a severe crash. For instance, if you total another driver’s vehicle, the repair bill could easily exceed $15,000. Whatever your policy doesn’t cover would have to come out of your own pocket.

Alternative car insurance in Utah

If crashes, DUIs or other factors are preventing you from getting car insurance on the voluntary market, you can apply for coverage through the Utah Automobile Insurance Plan.

Methodology

For our base-profile driver with good credit and a clean driving history, cheatgame.info averaged rates from the largest insurers for 40-year-old men and women in 20 ZIP codes. The policy includes:

  • $100,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person.
  • $300,000 bodily injury liability coverage per crash.
  • $50,000 property damage liability coverage per crash.
  • $100,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage per person.
  • $300,000 uninsured motorist bodily injury coverage per crash.
  • $3,000 personal injury protection.
  • Collision coverage with $1,000 deductible.
  • Comprehensive coverage with $1,000 deductible.

We used the same assumptions for all other driver profiles, with the following exceptions:

  • For drivers with poor credit, we adjusted the credit tier from “good” to “poor.”
  • For drivers with one at-fault crash, we added a single at-fault crash.
  • For low-mileage drivers, we adjusted the miles driven from 12,000 per year to 5,000.
  • For drivers with minimum coverage, we adjusted the numbers above to reflect minimum required coverage by law in the state.

We used a 2015 Toyota Camry in all cases. These are rates generated through Quadrant Information Services. Your own rates will be different.
