Insuranceopedia explains Driving Record

The number of years included in the driving record vary depending on the state. Violations are usually highlighted according to their degree of severity. A grave crime involving driving is marked more conspicuously than lighter offenses. Insurance companies scrutinize a person's driving record before insuring his or her vehicle. A driving record that shows many violations will boost premiums for car insurance.
