Auto Insurance for Threat Drivers in Connecticut – Bankrate.com
Drivers with multiple accidents, tickets, or a DUI may struggle to find low car insurance rates. Additionally, reckless or risky driving in Connecticut can result in your license being suspended, restricted, or revoked. Connecticut High Risk Auto Insurance is an alternative coverage that you may need to get when traditional vehicle insurance is no longer available or affordable.
Connecticut high risk auto insurance rates
The cost of your Connecticut vehicle insurance depends on your driver's license, vehicle and coverage, as well as a few other factors. High-risk Connecticut auto insurance is often more expensive than traditional insurance. Each insurance company has its own risk threshold when pricing your car insurance. An insurance company may offer affordable insurance for a driver with parking tickets, but will greatly increase the premiums after an accident or claim.
Tariffs according to a parking ticket
Speeding can increase your car insurance rates slightly or significantly depending on the airline. There is no formula to determine which insurance company is cheaper after a parking ticket. However, Bankrate's analysis found that Geico, Amica and USAA are the cheapest carriers on average.
|Car insurance||Connecticut Average Annual Premium for full coverage before a traffic ticket||Connecticut Average Annual Premium for full coverage after a traffic ticket||% Difference|
|Geico||$ 1,071||$ 1,125||5%|
|Amica||$ 1,216||$ 1,425||17%|
|USAA||$ 1,264||$ 1,425||13%|
An increase in insurance premiums after a traffic ticket can be avoided by completing an approved traffic school course. The eight-hour course can be completed conveniently from home or in person online.
Prices after an accident
In Connecticut, being responsible for a car accident increases your premiums more than a parking ticket. However, high-risk auto insurance rates in Connecticut vary immensely from one insurance company to the next.
|Car insurance||Connecticut Average Annual Premium for Full Pre-Accident Coverage||Connecticut Average Annual Premium for Full Coverage After an Accident||% Difference|
|Geico||$ 1,071||$ 1,336||25%|
|Amica||$ 1,216||$ 1,351||11%|
|USAA||$ 1,264||$ 1,720||36%|
Geico car insurance may initially be the cheapest coverage for safe drivers, but a single accident could increase your premiums by an average of 25%. Amica's rates after an accident are now increasing by an average of 11%. After all, USAA rates increase an average of 36% after an accident.
Prices after a DUI
Driving under the influence of alcohol can be the most dangerous risk a driver can take, both financially and in terms of safety.

Who is a Risk Driver?
There are high risk drivers of all ages and experience levels. Insurance companies often view drivers with a DUI conviction or with more than one accident or moving violation as high risk. Young drivers are also generally considered to be risky due to their inexperience.
If you collect enough points on your driver's license, you could face a suspension of your driving license. The number of points you will receive depends on the specifics of the incident.
How to lower your tariff if you are a risk driver
High risk drivers face limited transportation options and more expensive rewards. One way to make up for the limited options is to find ways to reduce insurance costs:
- Compare multiple carriers to find the cheapest coverage based on your current needs.
- Take advantage of as many discounts as possible. Some common discounts are multi-policy, paperless, and low mileage.
- Complete an approved eight hour traffic school course to avoid getting points from your driving report.
- Increase your deductible for fully comprehensive and collision damage to the highest possible amount that you can afford. If you only save 5-10% on your auto insurance, you can earn hundreds of dollars over time.

All Connecticut drivers must have civil liability insurance with a minimum of $ 25,000 for personal injury and death per person, $ 50,000 per accident, and $ 25,000 for property damage. Uninsured and underinsured motorist personal injury insurance is also required.
