“How the points on your driving record impact your rate will depend on your car insurance carrier. Rates and how your driving record influences them varies carrier to carrier.
However, in Michigan points stay on your driving record for two years. This means your insurance rate is likely to be higher for two years following the violation. Once they fall off your record, you may see your rates decrease as long as you’ve maintained a clean record.
If you’d like to see how your points will affect your rate, you should request car insurance quotes from multiple carriers. You’ll be able to see how carriers rate their policies and see what your average rate of car insurance may be.”
