What Are Pennsylvania’s Motorcycle Insurance Laws?
Four wheels or two, the state’s Department of Transport requires all motorists to carry insurance. The mandatory coverage requirements for motorcyclists include:
- $15,000 for bodily injuries to one person in an accident;
- $30,000 for total bodily injuries per accident; and
- $5,000 for property damage.
State law requires you to carry proof of insurance in your vehicle at all times. Authorities prefer an insurance identification card issued by your insurer but will also accept a policy declaration page, signed letter from your insurer, or an insurance binder.
Penalties for Riding a Motorcycle Without Insurance in Pennsylvania
If you are caught riding your motorcycle without insurance or are unable to present adequate proof that you are insured, you will face a $300 fine, a three-month license suspension, and a three-month vehicle registration suspension. Neither you nor anyone else will be able to drive your motorcycle during the suspension period.
