Florida FR44 – Keeping Things Simple

What’s the Easiest Way to Take Care of a Florida FR44?

So you were convicted of a DUI in the State of Florida and now you have to carry an FR44 for a few years. How do you go about obtaining one? Are there different prices for the same thing? How long does it take to get one?

Ironically, you don’t have to know anything about a Florida FR44 to get one. With minimal personal information such as your name, address, driver’s license number, date of birth, case number… you can get a quote from a reputable insurance agency and a policy can be issued. Most insurance agencies will file all of the proper paperwork for you, notify the appropriate authorities of your compliance, and deliver your policy via both email and snail mail. Basically you sit back and wait anywhere from 24 to 72 hours for your policy to be uploaded to the system in Tallahassee. Once your compliance has been acknowledged by the Florida DMV, you’re free to pay your reinstatement fee and get your license back (provided it was suspended in the first place). You are also free to get an Ignition Interlock Device if required. Payment for the policy can usually be made with a MasterCard, Visa, Discover and sometimes AMEX.

Pricing does vary between insurance carriers, often significantly, which is why working with an Insurance Broker is a good idea. A Broker can shop multiple companies to find the lowest rate for your unique situation. They also learn through experience which companies are better for different situations. Sometimes pricing can vary by as much as $1,000 for the same coverage over a 6 month period of time. It should also be noted that a Florida FR44 MUST be paid in its entirety on the 6 month policy. There are certain exceptions, but a good rule of thumb is to expect to pay anywhere from $300 to $3,000 depending on whether you need a Non-Owner Florida FR44 or an Owner Florida FR44. An Owner policy simply means you need to put an automobile on your plan. With a Non-Owner policy you can’t own a vehicle, but you can legally drive someone else’s car.

Chances are you’ve spent a small fortune on this DUI issue already. Don’t make getting a Florida FR44 any harder than it needs to be.
