What auto insurance is required in Florida

When you own a car, it comes with some responsibilities to carry auto insurance. What exactly those responsibilities depend on the state you live in. Insurance requirements are determined on a state level, so if you move, never assume the requirements you had in your previous state are the requirement in the state you have moved to. At Atlantis Insurance Inc. in West Palm Beach, FL, we have decades of experience, and we make sure our customers know the Florida auto insurance requirements and are in compliance. 

Florida is a no-fault state. This adds another dimension to required auto insurance. The required coverage is PIP (Personal Injury Protection) and PDL (Property Damage Liability). PIP coverage protects you personally in the event of an accident, and it doesn’t matter who is at fault. Keep this in mind when determining what amount you feel comfortable with. PDL pays for damage caused by you to someone else’s property. Florida residents require these two insurances before they can register a vehicle with four wheels. 

The minimum amount of PIP you must carry is $10,000. Keep in mind this insurance only pays 80% of any injuries, so you would still be responsible for $2,000. PDL coverage must also be a minimum of $10,000. Before you accept this as reasonable, consider the average cost of auto repairs or replacement, especially if it is a newer vehicle you damage. You must maintain this coverage even if your vehicle is stored and not being driven or inoperable. Failure to do this could result in your driving privilege and your registration being suspended for as much as three years, and you could be fined up to $500 to reinstate your driver’s license or registration.
