I could be wrong but I think that Mass. is the only state that doesn't issue ID cards on it's insurance policies to that probably means, yes, you need your ID card in FL. Yes, most definitely. If you're stopped by a law enforcement agent he/she will ask you for proof of insurance, especially if you're being stopped in regards to an accident that has occured.

Does your insurance cover you to drive a car that has no insurance?

Your personal auto insurance will be secondary to the insurance of the vehicle that you are driving (assuming you do not own it and it is not a business vehicle). If you get involved in a car accident while you are operating a vehicle that is -not- yours, then the insurance of that vehicle has to pay first, and if that insurance is not enough (or is not there) then your insurance will kick in. Notice that if you get pulled over by police they will ask you to show proof of insurance on the vehicle (not your insurance.) The law requires all vehicles to be insured, not individuals.

Do you have to have car insurance if you don't own a car?

no Actually, it depends on what you mean. In the U.S. you do not have to have car insurance if you don't drive a car, so if you don't own a car, by default you don't have to keep insurance, however, many states in the U.S. require you to have insurance if you are driving, so if you borrow someone's car, you may be required to have insurance while driving it. In the states that require insurance, you can get a ticket if you don't have it, so if you borrow a car, be sure the owner has it insured and ask him for a copy of the policy of proof of insurance card.

If you get a speeding ticket while driving a rental car will your insurance go up?

Insurance rates are based primarily on your personal driving habits and record, so if you receive a ticket while driving a rental car it can still be reported to your insurance company because the citing officer has your drivers license information. So in short, it is definitely possible for your insurance company to raise your rate based on a speeding ticket you received while driving a rented vehicle.

What will happen-had small accident while driving Insured friends car but didn't have proof of insurance at time of accident So cop gave citation to appear in court?

In most states in the United States, you do not need to carry proof of insurance with you, but you must be able to produce it in court. No penalty exists for not having proof of insurance with you. Most cars come with a folder in the glove compartment with two pockets. One pocket is for the registration and the other is for the insurance card. Inform your friend. What will happen in court will probably depend on the other information on the citation.
