How it works

Auto insurance rates are traditionally based on your demographics—think age, marital status, and ZIP code. But Root is a different kind of insurance company. We base rates primarily on how you drive, not who you are. It’s the fair way to price car insurance.

State requirements in Florida

What are the minimum requirements in Florida?

To legally operate a vehicle in Florida, you must carry Personal Injury Protection (no-fault insurance) and property damage coverage. If you are found driving without these coverages, you may face fines and suspension of your vehicle registration.

Property Damage

Property Damage covers damage to other vehicles or property when you cause an accident. It does not cover your vehicle (but Collision and Comprehensive coverages do).

Minimum Property Damage coverage Florida drivers must carry:

  • $10,000 for property damage (per accident)

You can select higher limits if you’d like more coverage.

Personal Injury Protection (PIP)

No-fault car insurance—also called Personal Injury Protection (PIP)—covers your household family members and your medical costs after an accident, regardless of who is at fault for the accident. Claims against the at-fault driver can be filed after the PIP benefits are exhausted. 

Minimum PIP coverage Florida drivers must carry: 

  • $10,000 limit per insured

What is the average cost of Florida car insurance?

The average Floridian pays $2,082¹ per year for their auto insurance, but many people are paying much more. Root doesn’t insure high-risk drivers, so our customers are saving up to $900 a year on their car insurance.
