A speeding ticket will stay on your record for five years or less in most states. Some states require a speeding ticket to stay on your driving record for longer, but most insurance companies will still only take the last 3-5 years into consideration when calculating your premium.
For example, a speeding ticket in Hawaii will stick with you for 10 years, and in Montana it will be on your record forever. But having an old speeding ticket on your record won’t hurt you long-term. Once it’s beyond your insurer’s lookback period, it won’t affect your premium anymore.
It’s important to remember that every insurance company has its own polices on how far back it looks on customers’ driving records, so be sure to check with your insurer to know exactly how long your speeding ticket will affect your premium. If you previously qualified for a good driver discount, you can also ask how long it will be before you can requalify. For example, American Family Insurance requires you to have a clean record for five years before you can receive the discount.
