Motorcycle Insurance for Jacksonville
Motorcyclists who are 21 years or older are not required under Florida law to purchase PIP (personal injury protection) or "No Fault" insurance. However, the state's Financial Responsibility Law does apply to all types of motorcycles operated on Florida roads. Even if you can satisfy the state's financial requirements, the voluntary purchase of liability insurance is highly recommended. If you are involved in a crash and cannot afford the out-of-pocket costs, you can be deemed as "not financially responsible". Consequently, you could face major monetary losses, civil court restitution, and/or loss of your license, tag and registration. In addition, the court may force you to purchase high risk insurance.
Whether your motorcycle is classified as high risk or your driving record is an issue, Shapiro Insurance Group can work with you to obtain motorcycle insurance coverage. For other bikers, we can eliminate the frustration of submitting dozens of forms when shopping for quotes online. Simply call our Jacksonville office directly for personal attention, or use this website's convenient contact form, and we will furnish you with a list of competitive motorcycle insurance rates from the most popular insurance carriers.
How to Avoid High Risk Motorcycle Insurance
Due to the speed and acceleration of today's sports bikes, they are the most expensive type of motorcycle to insure and are considered by most insurance carriers to be the most dangerous. In addition, sport bikes are stolen more frequently than most other types of bikes. If you live in Jacksonville and are under 25 years of age, you may want to consider purchasing another style of motorcycle especially in situations where the bike is going to be your only mode of transportation. In some cases, insurance companies will offer discounts to riders who have an accident-free driving record with no traffic violations as well as those who complete a certified motorcycle training program and can store their bike in an enclosed garage. If you believe a high-powered sportbike is your only choice, then accept the consequences and consult with an insurance professional to help you determine the most affordable options.

For the past eleven years, I have been with Shapiro insurance. When it comes to renewing policies, transferring insurance to new cars, or when we added my husband to the policy, Shapiro has always helped us and kept our best interests in mind. There is no other agency I would recommend in the Jacksonville area...and now that they have offices all throughout Florida, I can recommend them to friends and family across the state!
