As far as I am aware, no. That is the point of the Careless Driving conviction. Just be thankful the judge/prosecutor was willing to cut you the deal, pay the fine (plus that absurd surcharge), and drive carefully.

When the insurance company finds out about it, possibly. I imagine that it depends on your insurance company, but I'd say yes.

Yes. Depending on your insurer, it will continue at higher rate for two years.

Many national car insurance companies will vastly increase your rates or cancel your policy altogether after a drunk driving conviction or an administrative DMV.

After having a driving conviction your insurance rates will increase for a few years. You will need to talk to your car insurance company about getting a SR-22 form. It is possible to shop for convicted driver insurance online and compare rates.

Probably reckless. "Careless" implies something done by accident, like swerving over the line momentarily. "Reckless" implies something done willingly, without regard to the law or consequences.

No insurance company will insure you unless you have a valid drivers license. Now if you are asking if your rates would later increase if you have a conviction for this, you would have to check with your insurance company. However, that is a relatively minor violation, and in a state that uses a point system, would probably not be very many points, if any.

There are several different factors that cause an increase in insurance. Tickets dont always cause an increase in insurance unless they are pretty serious tickets.

Your insurance will eventually increase when they review your account but probably not right away. Every point you get on your license can increase your insurance.

Fines, suspension of your licence (typically one year from what I'm aware of), points added to your licence, increase in insurance rates, impossibility of being hired for a driving job within the first three years of your conviction, major difficulties in the same for the fourth and fifth years, slightly decreased difficulty for the sixth and seventh years after your conviction.

Yes; the demand for insurance agents is expected to continue to increase in the future, based on the increase in variety of products. In addition, growing population leads to an increase in demand for various types of insurance.

My boyfriend was driving my car and had an accident. My insurance company paid the damages but his insurance premiums went up. Mine did not increase. The points follow the driver. It has been a few years but I am not sure if it has changed. Your insurance agent should be able to inform you. I didn't want to call them at the time but I did and was assured even though they paid for it, I was not penalized nor were my premiums increased.

Adding onto the home will not make you rate increase by itself. However, you probably will have to increase the amount of coverage you have to reflect the increase in replacement cost. I would suggest that you contact your insurance agent and explain that you have added onto the home and ask them to see if you have enough coverage. If you do not have coverage equal to a certain percentage of the replacement cost you can be penalized on any claim in the future. This depends on what type of homeowner's policy you have and how much coverage you have. This is not something you want to find out after a kitchen fire.

No, but whoever was driving the car...his insurance cost will increase! It is the insurance on the car that crashes thru the wall that has to pay the claim. 4lifeguild

There are many things that would make a mortgage insurance premium increase. Mortgage insurance is used when someone dies and pays money so that the mortgage will be paid. Smoking or participating in dangerous activities will increase the premiums.

For DUI's on your record, you will have to have SSR insurance which will increase the cost of insurance. Progressive offers this type of insurance at a descent price.
