The 70 mph speed limit on I-95 is one thing you should take notice of while visiting West Palm Beach. Another thing you should remember? Car insurance. You always have to have it with you while driving in the Sunshine State.

There are 483 miles of toll roads in the Florida Turnpike System—some stretching through West Palm Beach. For the more forgetful among us, drivers can buy a SunPass to make getting through toll stops less painful. Finding good car insurance can be less painful, too—but forgetting about insurance altogether can be the biggest mistake you ever make.

Minimum Car Insurance Requirements in Florida

All motor vehicles operated or parked on Florida roadways are required to be insured. Proof of insurance must be carried in your car at all times and must be available when:

  • Requested by law enforcement

  • Renewing vehicle registration

  • The vehicle is involved in a car accident

The minimum liability insurance requirements for private passenger vehicles in Florida[1] are:

  • $10,000 per accident for property damage

If it’s determined that an insured driver is at fault for an accident, this coverage pays for repairs to the property of the other involved parties. Additionally, property damage coverage can cover legal costs if the insured driver is involved in a lawsuit following the accident. Florida is a no-fault state, meaning both parties’ insurance providers will pay for expenses, regardless of which party caused the accident.

  • $10,000 per accident for PIP

Personal injury protection coverage, also referred to as PIP coverage, will cover the policyholder for medical payments they incur in the event of an accident. Depending on your plan, you may also receive non-medical benefits, compensating you for lost wages, household expenses, and even funeral costs.

West Palm Beach Car Insurance Rates by Driver Age

Most teenagers will have to skip insurance without a little help from mom and dad, at a price of $754 per month—a rent payment in many parts of the country. In the Sunshine State, as driving experience increases, prices go down. That’s made clear by the dramatic $300 reduction young adults get with a few more years behind the wheel. The prices continue in a downward trajectory with slight bumps during middle age. People in their 60s get the best break and pay $400 less than the teens.

West Palm Beach Car Insurance Rates by Driving and Accident History

In West Palm Beach, it pays to be a safe driver. Insurance companies give “good driver” and “accident-free” discounts to people with clean records. Why do drivers with a failure to stop pay less than those with no violations? Drivers with violations often choose to strip their policies to the lowest protection possible, meaning they may choose liability or PIP only and not comprehensive or collision coverage. A violation or at-fault accident stops affecting insurance rates after three years.

West Palm Beach Car Insurance Rates by Credit Tier

Many Floridians wonder what exactly credit has to do with driving ability. The state allows insurance companies to decide rates based on credit, and they claim the numbers paint the picture. It’s pretty much a sliding scale in West Palm Beach. Those with better credit pay less for car insurance. The most dramatic savings come from moving from poor credit to excellent credit, which results in over $100 per month back in the bank. But even a move from poor credit to average credit nets over $50 per month.

How to get the best and cheapest car insurance in West Palm Beach, FL

Between the sunshine-seeking tourists and millions of commuters, Florida freeways are some of the world’s worst for accidents. Getting to work on time here takes talent, but getting a good rate on car insurance shouldn’t take more than an internet connection and a few minutes.

FAQs - West Palm Beach, FL Car Insurance

  • Florida is a no-fault state when it comes to making car insurance claims, which means regardless of who did what, your injury claims are always covered by your own insurance company (up to the limits you purchased). Personal injury protection (a.k.a. PIP or no-fault insurance) is the type of coverage Floridians tap into to pay their medical bills in an accident. It pays for a certain portion of your medical bills, lost wages, and a certain amount of death benefits, depending on the type of PIP coverage you buy. You can buy basic, extended, or additional PIP coverage.

  • You should always carry your insurance ID card with you in your car. This tiny piece of paper can be useful to share with the other driver if you get in an accident. It also includes your policy expiration date—a date you should know to prevent coverage from ever lapsing. Most importantly, it serves as proof of insurance if you are ever pulled over. If you don’t have the paper card on you, you can also show a digital ID card from your phone as proof that you do indeed have coverage. If you have neither of these but do have insurance, you could get a ticket and will need to go through the hassle of communicating proof of insurance to the DMV to get the ticket dismissed.

  • Although some states like California do not allow the use of credit scores when calculating insurance rates, many states still do, including Florida. Other things Florida insurance companies use to determine your risk and rate include your age, your job, the amount of education you have, your gender, your marital status, your ZIP code, your driving record, and how much coverage you want.
