“A speeding ticket will usually cause your insurance go up. The amount of your premium increase will depend on several factors, including your insurance company, driving history, location, and age.
The good news is that many states will allow you to take a defensive driving course in exchange for removing a mark on your driving record. You will have to pay the fine and a fee for the course, but the moving violation will not show up on your record and this will usually satisfy your car insurance company as well.
