Proof of Florida insurance must be submitted when originally purchasing a Florida plate, renewing your existing Florida plate, or transferring and renewing your existing Florida plate. The proof of insurance may be original, copy or electronic in the form of an insurance card, binder, policy or certificate of insurance. The proof must include a complete description of the vehicle and the type of coverage along with policy effective dates.

Additional proof of insurance is required for commercial vehicles with a Gross Vehicle Weight (GVW) of 26,001 pounds or more.  For more information on heavy trucks, please review the Heavy Truck Insert.

Update your vehicle insurance information with the Department of Highway Safety and Motor Vehicles.

Determine if your insurance company is approved to do business in Florida and to locate the five digit code.
