How much does insurance increase after a speeding ticket?

A speeding ticket tells your insurance company that you’re a higher-risk driver and more likely to be involved in an accident. Research backs that up – the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety (IIHS) reports that 29% of fatal crashes in 2020 involved speeding. Higher speeds increase stopping distance and makes it more likely the driver will lose control.

A higher risk of a crash, and of a more serious crash, means greater odds that the insurance company will have to pay a claim. To cover that risk, they increase your insurance rates.

How long do speeding tickets affect your insurance?

As a general rule, you can expect a speeding ticket to affect your insurance rates for three years. It’s important to note that this doesn’t start the day you got the ticket. Rather, the increase will hit your rates when your policy renews, and the insurance company can add the surcharge for three years from that date.

You might be able to avoid an increase in rates after a speeding ticket, but if not, your rates will go back to normal after three years.
