A “high-risk” driver is generally defined by the insurance companies, as someone who has a higher risk of having an auto accident.  Auto insurance companies often see high-risk drivers as undesirable, as they may end up costing a great deal in claims.

At Leap / Carpenter / Kemps, we have an experienced staff of professionals who understand that each family has unique auto insurance needs and that the one-size-fits-all approach just doesn’t work.

Why You May Be Defined As a High-risk Driver?

  • You have multiple accidents or tickets during a specific period of time.
  • You have a DUI.
  • You have a serious violation.
  • Any accident that results in a fatality.
  • Driving without a license.
  • Driving without insurance.
  • Your drive an exotic car.
  • For whatever reason your auto insurance has lapsed.

How to Get Auto Insurance If You Are Considered High Risk

  • You may need non-standard insurance.
  • SR-22 insurance for specific situations.
  • Allow your agent to shop auto insurance for you.
  • Determine what auto insurance discounts for which you may be eligible.
  • Improve your driving skills.
  • Consider a lower risk car.
