Yes, Progressive insurance typically goes up after a speeding ticket, with rates increasing by about 81% on average. For example, a California customer with no speeding tickets on their driving record pays an average of $549 per year for Progressive car insurance, but a speeding ticket could raise it to about $996 per year.
However, the exact amount a speeding ticket will cause a customer’s insurance to go up with Progressive depends on several personal factors. They include a customer’s driving record, their age, and how fast they were speeding (in some states). Also, if it’s the first speeding ticket a customer has ever received, or received in a three-year period, Progressive may not raise that customer’s rate.
Some customers may be able to take a driver training course to keep their Progressive insurance from going up after a speeding ticket. These driver education courses teach safe and defensive driving practices, and completing one that’s sanctioned by the state a customer lives in can often keep points from accumulating on a driver’s license.
