Cheap Car Insurance for Bad Drivers in Wyoming

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 38% after a DUI, 27% after an at-fault accident, and 24% after a speeding ticket in Wyoming. The post-citation penalties assessed by car insurance companies after DUI violations and at-fault accidents in Wyoming generally align with nationwide averages, but speeding tickets are penalized with larger-than-average rate increases. If you have a clean driving record, be sure to check for good-driving discounts from your insurer.

Best Car Insurance Companies in Wyoming

Each car insurance company brags about its low rates. But just like with any product, the cheapest choice is not always the best choice. Considering what's at stake, it's worth doing your due diligence to purchase an auto policy that will cover your car adequately after a collision. Be patient and look for the best value, rather than settling for the cheapest auto insurance you can find.

Compare local and national insurers' financial strength and claims satisfaction ratings to better understand the level of service they will provide. Claims satisfaction — measured by J.D. Power — is ranked on a scale of 2 to 5, with 5 being "among the best" and 2 being "the rest." Financial strength — calculated by A.M. Best and running from "Poor" to "Superior" — determines an insurer's financial strength and ability to meet its policy and contractual obligations.
