Eligibility Guidelines

Showing regional guidelines for
  • Qualification for our classic car insurance program depends on vehicle and owner guidelines.

  • Usage and Mileage

    Our policy allows the collector vehicle to be used for club functions, exhibitions, organized meets, tours and even occasional pleasure driving — it just can't be a daily driver. Regular driving to work and/or for errands up to 5 months a year as a Seasonal Driver may be considered.

  • Usage and mileage requirements may differ based on the vehicle that is being insured, such as collector trucks or vehicles that are 1980 and newer. Please review specific vehicle guidelines for this information.

    Mileage of 3,500 or less is generally consistent with operating vehicles that have collectible value. Mileage up to 7,500 may be considered.

  • Garaged Car


    Though we prefer that collector vehicles are stored in an enclosed, secure structure when not in use - such as a private garage, pole barn, car condo or storage unit - we will consider other storage types, including:

  • Carports may be considered in all states except CA and FL (counties of Broward, Miami-Dade & Monroe)

    • Must not be within 5 miles of the coast in TX, FL, LA, MS, AL, GA, SC or NC
    • Vehicle value must not exceed $100,000
    • Motorcycles and some modified vehicles are not eligible if stored in a carport

  • Driver Eligibility

    In most states, we can't offer coverage to drivers with a serious infraction. Serious infractions include:

    • Alcohol-related offenses
    • Reckless driving
    • Excessive speed violations

    All household driving records are subject to underwriter review. Generally one or two minor violations or accidents are acceptable.

  • Vehicles That May Not Qualify

    Because we provide low-cost, Guaranteed Value coverage, we are not able to provide coverage for certain vehicles due to how they are used and the increased risk associated. Examples of vehicles not eligible include:

    Double Cars
    • Off-road or recreational vehicles
    • Vehicles driven on a daily basis
    • Commercial-use vehicles
    • Motorcycles with performance modifications

    Please Note: Hagerty differs from standard insurance in that we don't have a price for every type of risk. We determine eligibility based upon the accumulation of all risk characteristics related to our program guidelines.

  • Coverage Limits

    Hagerty can offer liability limits less than or equal to the limits carried on the Personal Auto Policy (PAP).

    We can consider Business Auto Policies. However, the maximum limits we will offer are $100/$300 liability and state minimum limits for UM/UIM. We can consider higher limits when there is a Drive Other Car (DOC) or Individual Named Insured (INI) endorsement attached. Exception: The maximum limits we will offer in GA, KS, MN, NY, NC and NH are state minimum limits. A copy of the BAP and DOC/INI endorsement (if applicable) are required.

    Umbrella liability limit requirements can also be met, except in GA, KS, MN, NY, NC and NH. Proof of the umbrella requirement is required.

  • Double Cars

    Daily Use Vehicles

    • Clients with less than one daily use vehicle per driver may be considered
    • The daily use vehicle should be reliable
    • Motorcycles and public transportation are not considered viable daily use vehicles by our program in most cases (contact us for details)
