What happens if you don't have car insurance in Florida?

If a vehicle is registered in my name, do I have to provide insurance for it? For reference, I'm 17 and the car was a gift from a family member.

“In Florida, it’s illegal to operate a motor vehicle without car insurance. If the car title was transferred into your name and is still registered legally within the state, it may already have an insurance policy.
If caught without insurance, a driver must purchase additional SR-22 car insurance, which could increase the cost of future premiums.
