Most speeding tickets are for minor offences but the ticket can dramatically affect your insurance rates.
When you receive a ticket you should consider fighting the ticket to keep it off your insurance and to save any demerit points.
The insurance companies only find out about a speeding ticket when:
- the driver pays the ticket, or
- the driver doesn’t fight the ticket,
- the driver is found guilty after the court.
The insurance only learns of the ticket, after the driver has been convicted and the ticket appears on your driving abstract.
