Question

Am I being overcharged for my insurance policy?

I was ordered to get an SR-22, so I went to the insurance company that I have been with since I was 16. They gave me insurance quotes for both the year and for month-to-month. It just seemed really high, and when I asked why it was so high they said that it was the best rate I was going to get. I went ahead and paid for the year, but it wasn't until I looked at the receipt that I saw there was a broker's commission. That amount was more than the entire year's premium! I've reached out to them via email but I can't get a response.
