Reference Guide to Florida Verifications

When a crash occurs in Florida, the state sends an FR1/FR100 “Liability” Sanction Verification to the auto insurance carriers of the motorists involved in the incident. Florida advised carriers to confirm coverage for crash verifications if a motorist’s insurance policy meets the state’s minimum liability requirements, even if the VIN is registered in another state.

Oklahoma Plate Scanners

Oklahoma has contracted with the vendor Gatso USA to scan (using cameras) motorists’ license plates to determine whether auto insurance coverage is in place. The plates will be matched against the state’s verification system. If the vehicle is found to be uninsured, the owner will be mailed a citation with a penalty of $184. Motorists who pay the fine will not have a charge of driving without insurance on their permanent record.
