How Car Insurance Premiums are Calculated in Florida

In Florida, insurance companies consider a variety of factors before determining the cost of your car insurance policy. MoneyGeek found out that the most significant factors affecting the cost of insurance in the state are whether you add a teen driver to your policy, your credit score and your coverage levels.

Adding a teen driver to your policy can be the biggest factor that influences auto insurance rates. Insurance companies can charge you higher rates, and the cost of your policy can go up by as much as 2.6x.

How Much Adding a Teen Driver Matters in Calculating Car Insurance in Florida

In Florida, the insurance companies consider it risky and charge you higher rates when you add a teen driver to your policy. This is because teen drivers are more likely to get into an accident.

MoneyGeek found out that with a teen driver on your policy, your car insurance costs can go up by as much as 2.6x.

How Much Credit Score Matters in Calculating Car Insurance in Florida

Insurance companies in Florida also consider your credit score while determining your car insurance rates. In Florida, drivers with poor credit scores pay more than drivers with excellent credit scores.

If you have a low credit score in Florida, the cost of your policy can multiply by as much as 2.6x.

How Much Coverage Levels Matters in Calculating Car Insurance in Florida

The amount of coverage you buy also has a significant impact on the cost of your policy. A liability-only policy with Florida minimum limits is your most affordable option, while the most expensive annual rate is for full coverage car insurance with liability limits of 100/300/100 plus a $500 deductible.

MoneyGeek found out that buying a policy with a higher coverage limit can increase your car insurance costs by as much as 2.4x.

How Much Age Matters Matters in Calculating Car Insurance in Florida

Age can play a role in your car insurance rates in Florida. Since younger drivers and older drivers are more likely to get into accidents than middle-age drivers, they have higher premiums. Drivers who are 40 years of age can access the cheapest premiums, while drivers who are 19 or 20 years old pay the most expensive rates.

In Florida, the cost of your policy can multiply by as much as 2x based on your age.

How Much Car Model Matters in Calculating Car Insurance in Florida

The model and type of car you own help determine your car insurance costs. Since certain models are more likely to be stolen, have higher repair costs and are at an increased rate of being in accidents, they are considered riskier to insure by the insurance companies.

If you own a car that’s considered risky to insure by the insurers, you would have to pay as much as 2x more for a policy.

How to Calculate How Much Car Insurance You Need in Florida

In Florida, one of the most significant factors affecting your car insurance costs is the amount of coverage you add in your policy. If you calculate your coverage needs, you can find the right balance of cost and protection. Every driver in the state is required to have an auto insurance policy with property damage liability and personal injury protection coverage.

1
Understand Florida car insurance requirements

If you want an idea of how much coverage you need in Florida, you can look up Florida minimum car insurance requirements. The state law only requires you to have a policy with $10,000 of property damage liability coverage per accident and $10,000 of personal injury protection coverage per person. Florida doesn’t require bodily injury liability coverage, so you may want to increase liability limits to ensure more protection.

Additionally, Florida law does not require you to have comprehensive and collision insurance, which provides protection against the cost of damages in case of an accident.

2
Consider Purchasing Additional Liability Insurance

If you want to protect yourself against the cost of damages in case of a major accident, you may need to buy liability insurance that is above Florida’s minimum required coverage.

MoneyGeek found that the average cost of a policy protecting you for $300,000 in bodily injury liability per accident is $1,667 annually, while a policy with minimum liability insurance costs an average of $869 per year.

3
Decide whether or not to buy comprehensive and collision insurance

You should decide whether you need a full coverage policy, which includes comprehensive and collision insurance that protects you against the cost of damages in case of an accident. While Florida law does not require it, your lender may require a full coverage policy if you’re leasing or financing the car. MoneyGeek found out that the cost of adding comprehensive and collision with a $1,000 deductible is an average of $337 per year in Florida.

If you have an older car that’s only worth a few thousand dollars, it might be better not to opt for a full coverage policy as it won’t be suitable to pay hundreds of dollars for a low-value car.

4
Consider buying additional protection besides these core coverages

In Florida, roughly 20.4% of drivers are uninsured. MoneyGeek recommends that you buy uninsured/underinsured motorist coverage to protect yourself against the cost of damages in case you get into an accident with these drivers. Drivers in Florida also need to have PIP/medical payments coverage for up to $10,000.
