Car insurance rates vary from state to state regarding points ofr accidents and violations,, as well as make and model of car, how it is used, ages of all drivers. Young males pay highest premium (or their parents do) next young female drivers. The rules vary also with each Insurance Company. So to get the facts go straight to your agent, or if that scares you a wee bit, call any insurance agent and ask for a "quote on rates for----then let them ask the quetions; you will need to answer truthfully to get the correct "picture", By the way, your credit rating is now also playing a part in determining your rate!

How will 2 points on your driving record in the last 2 years affect your license and insurance in California?

"How will 2 points on your driving record in the last 2 years affect your license and insurance in California?" Your insurance premium is based on a number of factors only one of which is your driving record. If you have points on your license then your insurance will be higher than someone with other identical factors but no points. lwpat But if the 2 points where added because of 1 violation (reckless driving, over 100mph, ect but not including DUI) they will stay on your record for 7 years not 2 like 1 point violations and will make your insurance even more than 2 points overall on your record, from different violations added up(speeding 1pt, stop sign 1pt, Red light 1pt, ect) My insurance carrier (21st) in Calif increased my rate ~40% due to a single point (redlight camera ticket)

This depends entirely on state law. Some states do not even have a point system and the same speeding violation can carry different point values in different states. The clerk of court or the DMV in your home state can advise you of how a particular violation will effect your drivers license. Remember that insurance points are different from drivers license points. You may be charged an additional insurance premium for a speeding ticket even though it carriers no drivers license points. lwpat
