Can a Greensboro speeding ticket lawyer explain insurance points?  Of course!

Insurance points are covered under North Carolina statute.  A Greensboro speeding ticket attorney will tell you that five factors control your rate:

(1)        The basic North Carolina automobile insurance rates set out in the North Carolina Personal Automobile Manual.

(2)        Insurance points accumulated during the past three years for moving violations and accidents.

(3)        Whether their insurance company has transferred their coverage to the reinsurance facility.

(4)        What region of North Carolina they live in.

(5)        Whether they have three years or less driving experience, regardless of age.

The NCDOI website has great information:
