  • If you are over twenty five and this is the only ticket on your record in the last three years it will make little difference on your auto insurance rates. Insurance companies do not necessarily review your driving record every year. It is checked when you first apply and then it depends on the policy of that particular company.
  • The problems will start with your second ticket. That is why it is important to keep any and all tickets off your record. Many states will allow you to take traffic school or they have a deferment program.
  • Check the laws in your state to see what options are available. In most cases just showing up on your court date will allow you to negotiate for a reduction in the fine and points.
  • If you drive a company vehicle or have a CDL license it is very important to keep your driving record clean because the records of these drivers are checked every year.
  • As a general rule you can expect one four point ticket to increase your insurance premiums by at least 50% for each of the next three years. In many cases it is cost effective to retain an attorney to contest the ticket.
  • There are too many individual factors to predict how much, if any, this one speeding ticket will increase the insurance premiums for the entire family. It depends on the number of cars, number of drivers and their MVR's, the insurance carrier, previous losses and state law. Many insurance companies will not check your MVR every year unless there is a change to the policy. If they do not check, then your rates will not change. Typically insurance companies only check high risk drivers and those who drive a company vehicle every year.

I'd also add that it entirely depends on which conviction you receive. Depending on your situation you could receive a more serious conviction or receive a lesser one.

Speeding tickets and other accidents and violations will affect your auto insurance rates no matter what state you are in. The speed at which you were speeding can also affect your rates. One minor ticket will make very little difference in your insurance rate. Some companies do not increase your rate for just one minor violation in a three year period. It depends on the insurance company and their regulations.


The speeding ticket will go on your driving record. As to whether or not it will increase your auto insurance rate is really up to your insurance company. Many companies will not increase your rate for one minor violation if you only have one on your record. Many states and insurance companies recognize a ticket at or over 20 mph over the speed limit as a major violation instead of a minor violation.


If you get into an accident or get a speeding ticket your insurance will go up. I'm not sure about other traffic violations but speeding will.


If you do not go to traffic school to get the ticket removed from your record then yes it can affect your rates. However depending on the length of time you have had your insurance, the company, and your specific policy, then your insurance company can choose not to change your rates.


if you dont pay it and get suspended yes it will affect you insurance


I received a speeding ticket that I talked the trooper down to writing me for a seatbelt violation. My insurance did not go up as a result of this ticket. (I live in New York).


Because you are more likely to have an accident if you drive too fast. And insurance balances the likelihood of people having accidents.


That's a first. I have never heard of any insurance paying for a speeding ticket. The person driving is responsible regardless of it being a rental car or not.



Yes, Tickets for speeding and careless driving such as ignoring red lights, posted speeds and ignoring other drivers responsibilities such as licensing and insurance could indicate to an insurance company that you are a negligent high risk driver and will likely result in high auto insurance rates for you.


It really depends on your policy and your state. In the state of KS for example, your insurance would be raised 5% for the first offense. I hope that helps.


He might not be able to get insurance. If he did it would be at least $175 a month and could be much more.


Most likely it won't, especially if you are over the magic age of 25.


Yes, it will most likely raise your medical coverages.


No. Because the camera photos can identify your vehicle's plates, but cannot necessarily identify who was driving the vehicle at the time the photo was taken, the camera ticket will not affect your insurance in Louisiana (or most states).


Insurance companies ask if you've had any accidents or traffic violations within a period of time. If you admit, your insurance rate will likely be higher. If you lie and the insurance company finds out (and they will), your insurance will be cancelled.


Normally it will. However, there are a lot of other factors that also effect your rates such as the type of car and even your credit rating. Usually for one minor speeding ticket in the last three years of ten mph or less over the limit your rates will not change. If you have more, then you can expect an increase. As a general rule it is a good idea to shop for auto insurance and also to fight any speeding tickets or take online traffic school if available.


A North Carolina speeding ticket will be reported to your home state of Virginia and you will be assessed points on your Virginia license and there will usually also be an increase in your auto insurance. A North Carolina traffic attorney might be able to keep the ticket off your record depending on the circumstances. If the ticket is form more than 15mph over the limit, your right to drive in NC would be suspended unless you get it reduced.


If it is only a ticket and not one of those 85+ misdemeanor infractions, auto insurance companies cannot see it after 3 years. If you took traffic school, the ticket does not show up at all.


"In MA will a speeding ticket received in a commercial vehicle affect your personal auto insurance premiums?" Truck drivers with a CDL license are held to a higher standard than other drivers. New laws prevent a CDL driver from keeping a speeding ticket off his record by taking traffic school or a deferment. The only thing you can do is to contest the ticket and get it reduced or dismissed. Many violations are classified as serious for a CDL driver and two serious tickets in three years means a license suspension regardless of the number of points he still has on his license. This applies even if the tickets are received while driving his personal vehicle. Any ticket on your MVR will increase your personal insurance premiums. As a CDL driver you now have less options to keep your record clean and some companies will terminate a driver with three citations on his record. If you are a CDL driver you always need to know your options and the consequences before you plead guilty by just paying your speeding ticket. lwpat http://www.speedingticketcentral.com


Speeding tickets have negative effects on auto insurance rates. If your insurance company learns that you frequently get speeding tickets, they will label you as someone more likely to be in an accident. This again means that they may charge you more for the insurance, and give out less in case of an accident. Or they may plainly not want to insure you.



It will usually increase your premiums if your insurance company finds out about. Sometimes your current company will not run your motor vehicle record but sometimes they will.


The ticket points immediately go on the license and remain there for three years. The insurance rates will not change unless the policy changes or is being renewed.
