average annual auto insurance rates

Actuaries set car insurance premiums based on numerous factors. Among the site specific variables affecting premium rates are weather conditions, road and traffic conditions, economy, median age of residents, and population density, for instance.

Other factors affecting annual premiums are individual characteristics like the age, gender, marital status and driving habits of the vehicle's owner, among other things. 

The Average Annual Auto Insurance Premium for drivers in the state of Florida was $1,596 this year. This is noticeably higher than the overall annual national average for car insurance at the time, which was about $942. 



penalties for uninsured drivers

Florida drivers who get ticketed for driving without insurance are subject to fines, license suspension and possibly jail time. 

Repeat violations are met with harsher penalties. As an added insult to the financial injury, drivers with suspended licenses face hefty reinstatement fees. 

Nonetheless, Florida has more uninsured drivers on its roads than ANY other U.S. State. More than 1 in 4 vehicles driven in the state of Florida is uninsured. 



minimum liability coverage for florida drivers

The state of Florida has the lowest required minimums on auto insurance of of all U.S. states. The minimum coverage in Florida is only 10/20/10 per vehicle.

In other words, Florida drivers must purchase at least

  • $10,000 in coverage against injury to the driver
  • $20,000 in coverage for injuries to others
  • $10,000 to cover property damage


This will not often be enough to cover the actual cost of an accident.


That's why insurance analysts recommend at least 100/300 coverage for each owned vehicle in the United States. That's $100,000 in Personal Injury Protection (PIP) coverage and $300,000 in per-accident coverage.  

Comprehensive insurance is generally recommended for Florida drivers, although Comprehensive coverage doesn't cover certain types of damage, such as a broken windshield. 

Florida drivers also need Uninsured Motorist Insurance (UMI), because of all the uninsured drivers on state roads. 

If you are a driver over the age of 65, consult with AARP Car Insurance through The Hartford. They can get you the best deal.
