Can a dismissed ticket affect my insurance?
I am wondering if the ticket could still be seen by insurance companies. This is my first time buying car insurance so I'm not sure what to expect.
The only scenario in which a dropped or dismissed ticket would still affect you would be if there was an accident involved. If the ticket was dropped but your insurance company paid out to any party for a claim, the accident would still show up. If the ticket was dropped and a claim was not paid then an insurance company would not likely see it, meaning your rates would not be affected.
