Do all auto insurance companies check with your DMV for your driving record?
I got some minor accident on my record, something like bumping into someone and leaving a dent, I don't even really remember it was like 4 years ago. Anyway, this car was a rental that I dented and a very expensive one at that, ended up being 2500 to fix even though I could have popped the dent out for free. But because of this incident, state farm and geico are charging me out the wazo because I'm a 20 year old male with speeding tickets and this accident thing that happened a long ass time ago. The difference without the accident on there is amazing, so I'm trying to find a place that will ignore this thing that happened in SEP of 04. Anyone know of a place? Thank you. Yeah unfortunately taking a defensive driving course in Virginia won't get you anywhere.

I am an adjuster, not a broker/agent, but, as far as I know a DMV check is standard, especially for your age group (sorry)...however, alot only go back 3 years...State Farm usually only goes back 3 years...perhaps that is different due to your age as well (?). Try the AIG website or Progressive to get a variety of... More

There is no company that will ignore something that happened less than 3 years ago. Stay with your current company until August of 07 and then check with Progressive. They only go back 35 months.

Most insurance companies go back 3 years on minor violation and at fault accidents, 5 years on major violations, i.e., speeding over 25mph, reckless driving, etc. and 7 years on DUI. It's pretty much the industry standard. No insurance company will write auto coverage without checking your driving record and previous... More
