Washington State Auto Insurance Laws

Washington auto insurance law requires a liability policy with limits of at least 25/50/10, which means $25,000 for injury to another person, $50,000 for injuries to all other persons, and $10,000 for physical damage to another’s property.

Drivers visiting from another state still have to comply with Washington State’s Mandatory Auto Insurance Law. Check your insurance policy. Generally there is a broadening clause which allows for the policy liability limits to rise to meet the minimum required in the state of operation.
