Restore Your PIP Coverage on Jan. 1, Or Else

December 31st, 2007 by flanews

New Year’s Day will bring a not-so-new law for Florida drivers.  After three months away, personal injury protection insurance will once again become a legal requirement.  If you canceled PIP after October 1st, and don’t pick up the coverage again on January 1st, you risk losing your driver’s license.  And you could pay anywhere from $150 to $500 to get it back.

“It’s going to affect the people who haven’t had insurance since October 1st,” said insurance agent Corey Tyre.  “They’re going to have to go get it, or they’re going to get a letter from the Department of Highway Safety that says, you have 30 days to provide this insurance coverage or we’re going to suspend your license.”

Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink has set up a consumer help line, (877) 693-5236, to handle questions.  Or you can find out more on the web at myfloridacfo.com/NoFault
