How Much Does an OWI Raise Your Insurance in Wisconsin?
If You are Convicted of an OWI, Insurance Companies Will Consider You to be a High-Risk Driver.
Your insurance rates may double and/or increase by several thousand dollars per year if you are convicted of an OWI. Alternatively, your provider may decide to cancel your policy. They assume that you now have a higher than normal chance of being involved in a serious car accident. Even if you have never had a collision before, it only takes one DUI on your record to make you a very undesirable prospect to insurance companies.
The factors that cause your rates to increase differ between providers. Some insurance companies look further back in your records than others. Some will cancel your policy if you are convicted of one DUI, others will cancel after your second. Your provider may normally just raise your rates, but may include a stipulation that they will cancel your policy entirely if your DUI included property damage. Always read your policy carefully and do your research when selecting an auto insurance provider.
