Georgia Car Insurance Rates

It's probably no surprise that bustling Atlanta -- home of the world's busiest airport -- also has Georgia's highest car insurance rates. The same driver would pay one-third less for car insurance by moving from southwest Atlanta to Valdosta, about three hours south on I-75. You can see how all Georgia's state car insurance rates stack up in the map below.

What you need to know about car insurance in Georgia

Penny Gusner
Consumer Analyst

Georgia demands all drivers buy at least $25,000 bodily injury liability coverage per person, up to $50,000 per accident, and $25,000 for property damage liability. State law requires that you be offered uninsured/underinsured motorist bodily injury and uninsured motorist property damage but allows you to reject them in writing.

Georgia driver's license points system has a couple of unusual details:

  • No points are assessed for speeding convictions of less than 15 mph over the posted speed limit.
  • The state's relatively new Super Speeder law levies an additional $200 fine for anyone convicted of speeds of 85 mph or more (75 mph on a two-lane road).

A clean driving record pays off here. Georgia state law requires a 10 percent discount to drivers age 25 or older who have a clean driving record for three years prior and no at-fault accidents and complete an approved defensive driver course. Drivers under 25 can get a 10 percent discount for three years if they complete classroom and practical training.

Non-renew for accidents: Georgia auto insurance companies are permitted to non-renew a policy if an insured driver has more than one at-fault accident in the past three years or claims payments that total $750 or more.

Uninsured motorist penalties for Georgia: You may be fined $200 to $1,000, be sentenced to one year in jail, have your license and registration suspended and be required to file an SR-22 form.
