What are the minimum state requirements for car insurance in Florida?

If you reside in the Sunshine State, you'll need coverage limits of at least:

  • Personal injury protection (PIP): $10,000
  • Property damage liability (PDL): $10,000

PIP covers your medical costs, as well as lost wages and death benefits, and pays out even if you're at fault. PDL covers damage you cause to another person's vehicle or property.

Uninsured/underinsured bodily injury coverage (UM/UIM BI) is also recommended, with the following minimum limits:

  • UM/UIM BI: $10,000 per person, $20,000 per accident

Note: This coverage can be rejected.

UM/UIM BI covers medical expenses for you and your passengers if you're hit by a driver with no insurance or not enough coverage.

To ensure all of your assets are protected in case you’re liable in an auto accident, you can increase your limits beyond your state's requirements to cover your total net worth.

Consider carrying comprehensive and collision coverage

When you lease or finance a vehicle, lenders will usually require you to carry comprehensive and collision. Comprehensive covers damage to your car from incidents out of your control, such as theft and hitting an animal. Collision covers damage to your vehicle if you hit another object, including another vehicle, guardrail, or tree.

More coverages to consider:

Medical payments

Medical payments cover the cost of injuries to you or your passengers after a covered accident. Learn more about medical payments coverage.

Loan/lease payoff

If your vehicle is damaged in a covered accident and you owe more on your car than what it’s worth, loan lease payoff coverage, also known as gap insurance, can cover the difference.
