Insurance Information for DUI
Updated: Feb 8
Ask Lee Meadows, Tallahassee Attorney and Lawyer, How Being Convicted Of DUI Affect’s Your Automobile Insurance!
What do I do if I am convicted of a DUI?
You must contact your insurance company prior to your driver license being reinstated. Once you advise your insurance provider of your DUI conviction, your premiums may go up. Discuss with your insurance company the SR-22 and FR-44 forms.
What is the difference between a SR-22 and FR-44 form?
In Florida, you are required to file an FR-44 if you’re convicted of DUI, whereas the filing of an SR-22 is required for other offenses like reckless driving or causing an accident without insurance.
FR-44 Insurance Coverage mandates that any person convicted of DUI in the state of Florida is required to obtain a minimum level of insurance coverage before reinstating their driver license and that the coverage must be maintained for three years after the date of conviction. The current insurance minimum amount is $100,000.
