How long is the SR-22 filing required?

Depending on your court ordered probation the usual time period to carry an SR-22 is three years. The SR-22 will stay on your auto insurance policy as long as it is not cancelled so when your probation is over be sure to remove it from the policy.

I accidently let me SR22 insurance cancel, what happens now?

Once the policy is cancelled the insurance company will report to the state motor vehicle department that the SR-22 is no longer in force. At this time your license will be suspended again until you reinstate the auto insurance policy. The bad news is that your probation period is likely to start over so it will be longer before you are done.

Florida FR44

If you were convicted of driving under the influence (DUI) in Florida there are increased requirements for 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.

Florida now accepts electronic proof of insurance during traffic stops.
