Car Insurance FAQs #2

How does my driving record affect my insurance premium?

The premium you pay is a direct reflection of your driving record for the past three to five years depending on the insurance company.

Statistics show that drivers with tickets and accidents are more likely to have accidents than drivers with clean records.
