If someone else is ticketed while driving my car, will my auto insurance premium go up?

Answered by Home Insurance, Car Insurance Expert Alexah on February 22, 2021

I let my friend borrow my car and he got a ticket for speeding. Am I going to pay more for insurance as a result?

Your insurance rate is based on your own driving record, as well as the record of any other drivers listed on your policy. If you give someone permission to drive your vehicle and they’re not listed on your insurance policy, it won’t affect your insurance premium if they get a ticket.

This app is great, but the customer service is even better! Not to mention convenient! My husband and I got the lowest rate (much lower than the rates I was finding online through my own searches), quickly, and pretty much all through text message! Thank you so much for a hassle free experience👍
