What is the FR44 filing? The FR44 filing was created to make sure that a driver convicted of a DUI carries liability limits of 100/300/50. The state of Florida requires people convicted of a DUI to carry higher bodily injury and property damage limits to protect the public in the event they hurt someone in an automobile accident. The FR44 filing is electronically submitted to the state of Florida after the policy is written to certify the driver has the higher coverage limits.
How long do I need to carry FR44 insurance? In most cases the FR44 is required for a period of three years from the time you are convicted of a DUI. After you are convicted , you will be notified by the state of Florida with the exact date that the three year period will start. You can contact the Florida DMV to get the exact date your FR44 is no longer required.
