Why do I need auto insurance if I don’t own a car?
Individuals who don’t own a vehicle must purchase non owner insurance as a condition for license reinstatement. A licensed insurance agent must attach the non owner FR44 certificate to a high-risk insurance policy and file it with the Florida or Virginia DMV. UltraCar Insurance will file your certificate electronically on your behalf. To be able to drive after a DUI license suspension, you must carry high-risk auto insurance for a specific time, without letting the policy lapse. Drivers usually must carry non owner insurance for three years. The company that issues your policy monitors its status closely during that time.
Is Non Owner FR44 insurance expensive?
Driving after consuming alcohol or other drugs greatly increases your chance of causing an accident that may result in injury or death. Therefore, you can expect to pay higher premiums for FR44 insurance than for non owner SR22 insurance. (In Florida and Virginia, SR22 filings are for reinstatement after non-alcohol-related license suspensions.) Offenses that involve alcohol or drugs are much more serious in nature, thus the higher premiums and minimum coverage. The minimum coverage requirements non owner FR44 in Florida are $100/$300/$50, and in Virginia they are $50/$100/$40.
Non owner insurance is secondary insurance with liability only coverage. If you drive a borrowed car and cause an accident, your secondary policy pays claims if they exceed the vehicle owner’s insurance.
Limitations of Non Owner FR44 policies
- Liability-only coverage. (Collision or comprehensive coverage does not apply since you’re not insuring a vehicle.)
- Coverage only applies to you when you drive a borrowed vehicle on occasion.
- Non owner policies don’t cover household vehicles you can drive frequently.
- These policies do not cover you when driving rental, commercial, or employment-related vehicle.
In Florida, the DMV assigns non owner FR44 certificates a 9-digit case number, starting with the number 4. The policies cover a six-month period, payable in full up front.
