If you own a motorcycle and need to file a Virginia FR44 Insurance certificate, you can obtain Virginia FR44 motorcycle insurance. UltraCar Insurance can endorse your FR44 certificate to a motorcycle insurance policy.
What is FR44 insurance?
You will need to file an FR44 certificate for license reinstatement after a DUI in Virginia. An FR44 is a financial responsibility form that a licensed Virginia insurance provider files for you. It’s a way to guarantee that you maintain the insurance during the time the state requires you to keep it. Virginia DUI license suspensions usually average 3 years, but the length of time depends on individual circumstances.
You can attach a Virginia FR44 motorcycle insurance certificate to a motorcycle, scooter or moped policy. The insurance company that underwrote your insurance policy closely monitors it. If it lapses, the company notifies your insurance provider, who submits an FR46 to the state, which informs the DMV that your policy is no longer current. At that point, the state will suspend your license again, requiring you to repeat the reinstatement process.
How much does FR44 motorcycle insurance cost?
Alcohol and drug related violations are the most serious motor vehicle offenses. That’s why the cost of FR44 high risk insurance is much higher than standard or SR22 insurance. Premiums for Virginia FR44 motorcycle insurance depend on factors such as:
- Where you live (rural vs. urban)
- Your age
- Driving record
- Circumstances of your DUI conviction
- The type of motorcycle (a sport or high performance bike may cost 2 to 3 times more than a regular street bike)
- The size of the engine
Other Virginia FR44 motorcycle insurance considerations:
If your only vehicle is a motorcycle, you can attach the certificate to your motorcycle policy. If you own both a car and a motorcycle, attaching the FR44 certificate to your motorcycle policy may save you money. Another option is to get a non owner FR44 Virginia policy. However, you would not be covered to ride your motorcycle with a non-owner insurance policy.
Of course, if you also need an ignition interlock device, that requires you to tie the FR44 certificate to a car or truck policy. If you’d like a quote on FR44 insurance with a car or truck, UltraCar Insurance partners with Intoxalock® as a service to our customers.
