When it comes to car insurance, most people know they are required to carry at least liability insurance. But what about your all-terrain vehicle (ATV)? If you own an ATV, you should be carrying ATV insurance coverag0 as well. Here are a few tips to help you make sense of ATV insurance coverage in TN, NC, AR, GA & KY.

Is ATV insurance mandatory?

Each state has its own rules and regulations for having insurance for ATV’s, utility terrain vehicles (UTV’s, also known as side-by-sides), dune buggies and other types of recreational off-road vehicles. Even if your state does not require you to purchase insurance, it’s still a wise idea to purchase an insurance policy for your ATV. If you injure someone or damage someone else’s property while riding, you are responsible for paying for those injuries or damages. Purchasing an insurance policy will help provide peace of mind for you while you’re out enjoying your off road vehicle!

What does ATV insurance cover?

There are several options when it comes to ATV insurance. Bodily Injury and Property Damage Liability coverage is one of the most basic options you will be able to purchase. Purchasing a liability policy for your ATV will provide coverage for someone you accidentally injured while driving. Likewise, if you damage another person’s property (such as a mailbox), your liability policy will provide coverage for that damaged mailbox. Coverage will vary depending on the amount of liability you purchased of course. Feel free to ask us which ATV insurance coverage is best for you!

Uninsured and Underinsured Motorist coverage (UM/UIM) is commonly purchased or sometimes even required along with liability coverage. If someone hits you on your ATV and you are injured, that person is liable for your medical bills under their own liability policy. If that person didn’t have enough coverage or had no insurance at all, the UM/UIM portion of your policy can help cover your medical bills.

You may also choose to purchase comprehensive coverage for your ATV. Sometimes, comprehensive coverage is called “Other than Collision” coverage because it is such a broad category. Comprehensive coverage will pay for damage to your own ATV if it is stolen or if you hit an animal, for example. Theft, fire, and vandalism will also typically be covered under the comprehensive section of your ATV policy. Most of the time, you will pay a deductible, or out of pocket cost, if your ATV is damaged by a covered loss. Once your deductible is satisfied, your insurance company will help cover the rest of the damage. Your insurance company will likely give you a list of deductible options when you obtain your ATV insurance quote.

Collision often gets paired with comprehensive coverage on an ATV insurance policy. Collision coverage will also have its own separate deductible and will cover damage to your ATV if you collide with another object such as a tree or mailbox. It will also be the coverage you turn to in order to repair your vehicle if you caused an accident with another vehicle.

Sometimes ATV insurance companies will offer additional coverage such as towing or Emergency Road Service. Some companies will also offer optional coverage for upgrades you made to your ATV or even your helmet or other safety gear and accessories. It’s important to ask your ATV insurance company about these coverage options!
