    Yes it will, but it'll be scored by the MD point scale. VA is different (higher) than maryland. I believe MD has 2, 3 and 4 point tickets. VA has 3, 4 and 6 (or 3, 5 and 6) point tickets.

    However the limit for points in MD is something like 10 before you go on probation and 12 before you get it suspended. In VA it's something like 18 before you go on probation and 24 before it is suspended. Or something like that.

    But it definitely will transfer.

    Insurance companies see everything on your driver's license record in your state. Depending on the state that you get a ticket in, most likely it will appear on your record thanks to the Driver's License Compact. If you got this ticket in Michigan or Wisconsin, your current jurisdiction would NOT have seen the ticket on your record.

    You will have to go to court in that state and fight it, try to get it reduced. The only way it won't carry points is if they rule it as a ticket that doesn't have any point value in MD.

    Yes, insurance will see anything that shows on your record. Good thing is they only check every 3 years (or so)...its too difficult to check all the time and too expensive. So if you signed up in 2000 for insurance, they checked again in 2003, they won't check again until 2006. So you may not see increased rates for a while.

    However, in MD you are required to show proof of insurance when you go to court, which tips off your insurance company to check your record when they get a request for proof. You're in luck though since it is in VA, they won't ask for proof and you'll only have an insurance hike if they check your record soon, and if they deem it 'bad' enough to raise your rates.

    I had a ticket (two actually... but about 8 years apart) and it didn't increase my rates at all. State Farm loves me I guess!

    Good luck with the ticket.

    what's up mang?
    You finally got a ticket huh?
    Sorry to hear that. How's coffee shop thing going? And wedding plan? Um...I can't reach you on your phone...so .. anyways... If you get 8 points within 2 years, then you'll get your license suspended in MD. Trust me...u know how many tickets I got.
    I just came back from Driver's Improvment class few weeks ago. On VA points transfering to your insurance company thing. I think it may depend on your insurance company. When I went with Geico...they saw both VA/MD points I stacked up. However, my Farmer's Insurance.., only saw MD points that I collected. So... you might want to do some search on that.

    Hit me up dude.

    A few years ago I got a ticket on the Dulles toll road doing 90 trying to get someone to the airport and since my speed was "excessive" they also hit me with reckless driving. I live in MD as well and was extremely worried about these tickets showing up on my record in MD. So I went to Fairfax County court and they hit me with every fine they could but they did not say how many points it would be. Anyway I never got hit by my insurance company (Erie) and I just switched insurance this week and my record came back clean. By the way when I switched from Erie to eSurance (www.esurance.com) my WRX insurance went from $1,100 a year to $700 a year.
