Florida FR-44 Insurance
If you were convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in Florida there are increased requirements for Florida FR-44 Insurance. You will be required to carry liability limits of:
$100K per person
$300k per accident
$50k property damage
The Florida Uniform Financial Responsibility Certificate FR-44 is required for three years unless a judge determines differently. There are no driving restrictions associated with the FR44 form but the court may limit your driving based on the offense. The addition of the Florida FR44 is only $15 but the increase in your auto insurance will be due to the DUI you received.
Do not let your auto policy lapse because the insurance company will notify the state and you may be suspended again.
Florida Liability Insurance Requirements
The state of Florida requires liability insurance to protect other drivers in the event of an accident. The minimum limits are:
$10k Per Person Bodily Injury
$20k Per Accident Bodily Injury
$10k Property Damage
These limits are also required for filing an SR-22. Ask your insurance agent what they recommend based on your financial position. If you need to file a Florida FR44 you will be required to have higher liability limits.
