Why You Might Need a Florida Driving Record
Driving records are important for insurance purposes because car insurance companies charge higher premiums for customers with a history of violations or accidents. For instance, a single speeding ticket increases premiums by an average of 29% in Florida. Checking your driving record can help you verify that the information is correct.
It’s also a good idea to see when a violation occurred because insurance companies generally look at the past three to five years of your driving record. Once insurance companies stop taking the violation into account, you should compare quotes again to be sure you’re still getting the best rate on the coverage you need.
