Direct General / renewal

1 FL, United States Review updated:

Here is one for the books. I renewed my insurance in February with Direct General Insurance. Then in April of the same year I was pulled over for get this a suspended drivers license. Apparently the company did not notify the DMV that I had insurance. I was thinking about going with another company back in February so since I didn't renew on the 16th when my policy was to expire they were sure to jump on it to tell dmv my policy had expired. When I went ahead and renewed on the 17th did they even think to report that to the dmv, NO. So I received a $166 ticket for suspended license, $61 for a new license, $6.25 for a temporary license and $30 to take the online course so it wouldn't affect my points on license. The company just claims it is my fault. I didn't know I had to notify DMV whenever I was to purchase car insurance. I thought the company you just spent a arm and a leg with would do their job and notify the dmv. SO WATCH OUT FOR THIS COMPANY THEY WOULDN'T EVEN REFUND ALL THE MONEY I SPENT BECAUSE OF THEIR MISTAKE. FIND SOMEONE WITH BETTER COMPANY ETHICS. JUST A WARNING
