“Mileage-based or pay-per-mile insurance has many benefits for people that drive infrequently or only short distances, but not every company offers this option in every state.
Your state department of insurance regulates all of the insurance carriers in that state. Each state has specific regulations that insurance companies must follow in order to do business in that state.
In order for a company to offer mileage-based insurance in your state, they would need to submit a proposal of the type of policy and how they intend to rate the policy for review by the insurance department.
Because every authorized insurance company is required to file their insurance rates with the state department of insurance for approval, either your company has not sought approval in your state yet for this type of insurance, or the state has not yet granted approval.

Why aren’t I getting a low-mileage discount on my policy?
Where is a low-mileage discount listed on my policy? My insurance agent said I was getting a discount because I drive less than 3000 miles per year, but when I got my policy documents, it was not listed under the discounts.
