Drivers with great driving records typically enjoy lower car insurance costs than drivers with histories of speeding tickets, at-fault accidents, or DUI citations. Indiana drivers without a recent speeding ticket typically save 17% on their car insurance — on pace with the national average. In addition to earning a cheaper premium for driving incident-free, you may qualify for a safe-driving bonus through your car insurance company. The amount of these discounts may vary, but they typically run between 5 and 10%.

|No Traffic Tickets||$238||17.42%|
Young drivers (those between the ages of 16 and 25) pay extraordinarily high auto insurance rates, with those aged 16-19 paying the most expensive premiums of all. Because of the risk presented by inexperienced drivers, teens pay more than three times the national average for car insurance. In Indiana, the typical teen driver pays $4,225 per year — $700 cheaper than average for teen drivers nationwide — but still almost four times more than the rate for all Indiana drivers.

If you have a clean driving record — no at-fault accidents, speeding tickets, DUIs, or other recent citations — you'll probably pay less for car insurance. Conversely, a bad driving record will cause your rates to skyrocket: car insurance premiums typically increase by 33% after a DUI, 31% after an at-fault accident, and 17% after a speeding ticket in Indiana. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies in the Hoosier State align with national averages. If you have a sparkling clean driving history, be sure to inquire about your insurance company's safe driver discount.

Be patient and look for the best value, instead of settling for the most affordable car insurance in Indiana.

If you receive a ticket, your car insurance rates may rise. How much your rates rise depends on the severity of the violation, your car insurance company's pricing standards, and differing local insurance regulations. That's why tickets may have a different impact on insurance in your state compared to the national average.
