  • Vehicle Registration
  • Vehicle inspection
  • Renewing your driver’s license
  • Traffic stops

What is electronic proof of insurance?

It’s evidence that you have the ability and monetary resources to pay for potential damages caused by your car.

Recommended Auto Insurance Coverage

If you’re involved in an accident, the minimum car insurance requirements in Texas may not be enough to protect you financially from expensive repair and medical costs. Liability insurance will only help pay for the other driver’s expenses. It will not help pay for your own expenses. As a safe, responsible driver, consider raising your liability limits and adding collision, comprehensive, medical payments and uninsured and underinsured motorist to your policy.

All car insurance companies in Texas offer policies to cover Texas auto insurance coverage requirements. Talk to your local Safeco insurance agent about a level of coverage that is right for you and to get a Texas car auto insurance quote.

Texas Auto Insurance Coverage Options

In addition to car insurance coverage required in Texas and our popular auto insurance coverage options Texas drivers have even more coverage choices.

Safeco Optimum Package Plus™

For as little as $8* a month get a diminishing collision deductible that decreases $50 every six months, or $100 with an annual policy renewal, for a maximum of up to $500. Plus, increase your personal property coverage up to $1,000 for items stolen from your vehicle, enjoy electronic lock and key replacement coverage with no deductible and much more.

OEM Parts

For cars, vans and pickups less than 10 years old, original replacement parts coverage helps with the cost to use new original equipment manufactured parts for repairs and replacement. If you prefer to use OEM car parts instead of aftermarket car parts, OEM parts coverage allows you to use original equipment manufactured parts when they’re available.
