If you're looking for car insurance in Virginia, you've come to the right place. Mercury's Virginia page has information on state driving laws, some interesting Old Dominion State facts, and best of all you can learn about Mercury's many products and services.

Mercury has been selling auto insurance since 1962, and is trusted by millions of drivers. In fact, Forbes.com has named Mercury Insurance one of America's Most Trusted Companies, so you can count on Mercury to be there when you need us most. And, you won't find better coverage at a better price. 

Car Insurance Coverage In Virginia

All drivers are required by state law to carry car insurance. Mercury sells a variety of insurance products through a network of local, independent agents. In Virginia, we have agents in every major market to help you every step of the way. Mercury offers comprehensive coverage options ranging from personal auto insurance to homeowners insurance to mechanical protection.

Surprisingly, Virginia doesn’t require drivers to carry car insurance. To legally drive without auto insurance, you must pay the $500 Uninsured Motor Vehicle (UMV) fee every time your vehicle registration expires. The downside is that this fee doesn’t provide you with any insurance coverage.

If you choose to get car insurance — which we highly recommend — here’s the coverage you need:

  • Bodily injury per person — $25,000

  • Bodily injury per accident — $50,000

  • Property damage per accident — $20,000

If you don’t have car insurance or didn’t pay the UMV fee, you could face several penalties. These punishments include a Class 3 misdemeanor conviction, a fine up to $500, and a driver’s license and license plate suspension. Additionally, you may need to file an SR-22 form for three years. This form proves to the state that you have auto insurance. To avoid these penalties, get car insurance and keep your insurance card in your vehicle at all times.

Mercury enjoys a unique position in the Virginia market, since we provide our customers with some of the state's most affordable and personalized agent-driven service. Mercury sells a variety of insurance products through a network of more than 8,000 local, independent agents in 11 states.

About Virginia

Nicknamed the Old Dominion State or Mother of President State, Virginia is one of the original 13 colonies, and was the 10th state to join the Union. While Virginia is one of the 50 states, it is correctly referred to as the Commonwealth of Virginia

In fact, Virginia was home to the first British settlement in America, Jamestown. Unknown to many, Jamestown was founded for the cultivation of silk. After blight fungus destroyed the mulberry trees, settlers began planting tobacco as a cash crop. To this day, tobacco has remained a major regional crop.
