SR-22 Car Insurance

SR-22 insurance, or an SR-22, is a certification issued by your car insurance company showing proof that you are carrying the minimum liability coverage required by your state. If you have been involved in an accident and were not carrying minimum car insurance, most state DMVs will require you to hold an SR-22. SR-22s can also be required for other types of traffic offenses.

While each state has its own requirements, examples of circumstances that frequently require an SR-22 include the following:

sr22_DUI

DUI or DWI or any serious moving violation

Collision Car Insurance Coverage

sr22_license

How Long Is An SR-22 Valid?

Each state has its own requirements for the length of time that an SR-22 must be in place. As long as you pay the required premium and keep the policy active, the SR-22 will remain in effect until the requirements for your state have been met. If your policy is canceled while you are still required to carry an SR-22, your insurer is required to notify state authorities, which may result in a suspension of your driving privileges. Your insurance company will provide the state with advance notice before canceling your coverage. If you do allow the coverage to cancel, your insurer will file an SR-26 with the state, indicating that your policy is no longer in effect.

Are There Any Fees For Filing An SR-22?

Most states require a small filing fee when an SR-22 is first filed. There is usually no fee to renew an SR-22, unless you have allowed your policy to lapse. An SR-22 is filed for a specific driver, so if there are additional drivers on your policy, you will need an SR-22 for each driver.
