Not all insurance plans are created equal and different coverage levels depend on each driver’s needs and situation. Additional coverage and discounts may be available depending on your state of residence and situation.

Insurance Using Real-Time Driving Behavior

Tesla offers insurance using real-time driving behavior. This is currently available to all Model S, Model 3, Model X and Model Y owners in select U.S. states. Insurance using real-time driving behavior is not available in California.

Tesla Insurance determines your premium using several factors like what vehicle you drive, where you live, how much you drive, what coverage you select and the vehicle’s monthly Safety Score. The safer you drive, the higher your Safety Score and the lower your insurance premium.

Unlike other telematics or usage-based insurance products, Tesla Insurance does not require an additional device to be installed in your vehicle. Tesla Insurance uses specific features within the vehicle to evaluate your premium based on your actual driving. You will make monthly payments based on your driving behavior instead of traditional factors like credit, age, gender, claim history and driving records used by other insurance providers.

Obtaining an SR-22/FR-44

A certificate of financial responsibility serves as proof your auto insurance policy meets the minimum liability coverage required by state law. Depending on the state, the certificate of financial responsibility is referred to as either an SR-22 or FR-44. While regulations vary by state, a certificate of financial responsibility is required by the state or a court for certain driving-related violations such as DUI and reckless driving convictions. Request a certificate of financial responsibility by emailing support@teslainsuranceservices.com. There is a flat fee you must pay per term when we file a financial responsibility certificate on your behalf.
