Penalties for Driving Without Insurance
It is a legal requirement for all drivers in Florida to carry insurance. Minimum coverage is $10,000 for property damage liability (PDL) and $10,000 for personal injury protection (PIP). If you drive without it, penalties will be based on whether this is your first offense or if you have others on your record.
Drivers ticketed for driving without insurance can be charged with:
- Suspension of license, plates, and registration for up to three years
- Reinstatement fees of up to $500
- Points added to their driving record
Not only will you be burdened with an inability to drive, but you are also responsible for paying hefty fines when your driving privileges return. Just "accepting the consequences" can be disastrous and should be avoided at all costs. The best way to do this is by consulting with our experienced legal team.
