HUB Insurance Hunter | DUI Offences and Future Auto Insurance Rates
Getting arrested for a DUI is a very serious offense. When you drink and drive you are not only putting your life at risk, you are also putting other people lives at risk. If you are convicted of a DUI offense, getting auto insurance will become very difficult for you.
The offense will stay on your record for 3 years and you will automatically receive a license suspension, two things that will significantly impact your ability to get auto insurance, let alone get a good rate for car insurance coverage.
Depending on the severity of the offence, if you were convicted, your previous driving history and your age, expect your rates to jump significantly and remain very high for the foreseeable future. You can expect your rates to be as high as $20,000 per year for car insurance, making it almost impossible for most people to afford.
However, there is one option for a person in this situation, working with an insurance company that works with high risk drivers. If they are able to get you’re an insurance policy, expect it to be very expensive now, and into the future.
Getting a DUI will significantly impact your ability to save money on car insurance. Many insurers will not be willing to provide you with auto insurance, and if they do, the terms and conditions will not be favorable.
