Facing a charge of driving under the influence (DUI) or driving while intoxicated (DWI) is an expensive endeavor on two levels: even after you pay court costs, fines and legal fees, a DUI can also affect your insurance premium. You shouldn't be surprised that a DUI and car insurance are linked.
Insurance after a DUI
Insurance companies consider several factors in determining what you pay for coverage, including your driving history. A DUI or other serious infraction can drive up your premium and some insurance companies wont cover drivers with a DUI.
Do you need an SR-22?
Drivers with a DUI may be considered a high risk. They also may be required by their state department of motor vehicles to carry an SR-22 document proving financial responsibility in the event of an accident. Learn more about what an SR-22 is and whether you may need one.
