FAQ's for Drivers in Idaho Falls, ID

driver’s frequently asked question in Idaho Falls

What Is the Minimum Liability Coverage Requirement in Idaho Falls, ID?

Idaho drivers are legally obligated to carry minimum limits of $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person and $50,000 per accident, along with at least $15,000 property damage coverage per accident.

Under state law, your carrier must automatically offer you uninsured and underinsured motorist coverage in the amounts of $25,000 bodily injury coverage per person and $50,000 per accident. However, you can reject this additional coverage in writing if you prefer to go without it.

  •  $25,000; Bodily injury coverage per person; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to a single person
  •  $50,000; Bodily injury coverage per accident; Maximum payment for serious or permanent injury or death to multiple people
  •  $15,000; Property damage per accident; Maximum payment for all damaged property in an accident caused by you

Carrying just the minimum coverage to satisfy the law is fairly common. But keep in mind that this doesn’t protect you in a variety of circumstances. If you think of your auto insurance as an investment into your financial security, you might decide it’s worth a little more each month to add on optional coverages. There’s peace of mind in knowing that your wallet is well protected from all sorts of potential expenses—some of which can be significant.

What Is the Blood Alcohol Concentration (BAC) limit in Idaho Falls, ID?

It’s illegal to drive in Idaho at the following BAC percentages:

.08%+ at 21 years old or older

.04%+ for commercial vehicle drivers

.02%+ at under 21 years old

Idaho enforces stricter penalties for drivers registering a BAC of 0.20% or higher. In such situations, the penalties are increased to match what they would be if the driver had an additional prior offense within the last 10 years (i.e., a first-time offender would face second-time offender penalties, and a second-time offender would face third-time offender penalties). Learn more about DUI consequences two questions down.

What happens if my coverage lapses?

Under Idaho law, all registered vehicles must have financial accountability with the legally mandated minimum coverage at all times. First-time offense penalties in Idaho are fairly lenient compared to those in many other states, but driving without insurance puts you and other motorists at risk and should never occur.

The first time you drive without insurance, your license will be suspended until you can show proof of coverage and pay a reinstatement fee. Also, you’ll face fines of up to about $130. Fines may increase as much as tenfold on your second infraction, though, and you may also be sentenced to up to 6 months in jail (or face less jail time and additional fines).
