I Have Been Charged With a Virginia DUI. Will My Insurance Rates Go Up?

Comments (0)

If you have recently been charged with a Virginia DUI, your insurance rates will not go up unless you are convicted. Therefore, you have a chance to maintain your rates by fighting your DUI charge. You can do so with the help of a Virginia DUI defense attorney. An attorney can investigate your case, examine evidence, call in witnesses or experts (if applicable) and help you build a solid DUI defense.

If you are convicted of a Virginia DUI, the answer is yes - you may find that your insurance rates are going to increase significantly.
   

This is because you will be required to fill out an SR-22 form, which you must request from your insurance company. This form is necessary to have your license reinstated after it has been suspended. And once you request an SR-22, your insurer will likely classify you as a high-risk driver. They may also charge you a fee for the SR-22 form.

Other penalties for a Virginia DUI include fines, license suspensions, points on your driving record, and the possibility of time in jail. To avoid a hike in your insurance rates, as well as other penalties, you can get the professional help of a Virginia DUI defense attorney.
