Will a ticket affect my insurance rates in BC?

Tickets can have all sorts of consequences that are not printed on the face of the ticket. They can attract penalty points, and trigger driving prohibitions, and they can result in you having to pay Driver Risk Premiums or Penalty Point Premiums.

There are a number of reasons to be concerned that if you get a traffic ticket in BC, you may be at risk of a bigger financial loss than just paying the ticket itself.

Missed the time to dispute a ticket? Filing a late ticket dispute

When it comes to disputing a traffic ticket, you only have 30 days from the date you got the ticket to file for a dispute.

If you miss the 30-day time limit, you may be able to file a late dispute of your ticket, but this is only permitted in certain circumstances where you missed the time limit for reasons beyond your control.

In order to file a late dispute, you must submit an application to the court, and it can only be filed if you have not paid the ticket. If you’ve already paid, your options are different and will be touched on later in this blog.

Difference between the Driver Risk Premium and the Driver Penalty Point Premium?

The Driver Risk Premium is a premium that you get invoiced once a year based on the number of convictions that you have on your driving record, depending on what those convictions are.

Not every ticket you get will trigger a Driver Risk Premium invoice, but the tickets that do trigger it are the ones considered to be high-risk offences.
