Will my insurance be affect if a friend of mine got a DUI ticket in my car? 8 Answers as of April 18, 2014

My friend got a DUI in my car. He was outside of the car in the gas station and was arrested there. I did not receive a ticket and my car was not impounded. I had another friend who comes to pick up the car and take it home. Since he got a ticket in my car will my insurance go up?

Probably NOT, but why are you worried about that when you are loaning your vehicle to friends that are drinking. The car will be wrecked soon enough.

Based on the facts as you have presented them it does not appear that it should affect your insurance.

    It shouldn't affect your insurance. The offense goes with the person not the vehicle and unless there was damage to the car that required an insurance claim there should be no impact.

    Probably not, insurance is based on the driving record of the insured driver, assuming you don't have a DUI.
