What is an SR22 and why do I need one?
SR-22’s are an insurance document filed with the DMV that shows proof of financial responsibility. If you’ve had a DUI, DWI, suspended license, major moving violation, ticketed for driving without insurance, or just a lot of tickets, you will likely need to carry an SR22 to start the process to reinstate your license. The DMV typically requires you to carry the SR22 for 3 years, and it’s extremely important to not let your policy lapse during that period, because it needs to be 3 years of uninterrupted coverage!
What Does An SR22 cost?
SR22’s typically cost about $20 for the filing, and must be attached to an insurance policy. If you own a car you can add the SR22 to your auto insurance policy. If you don’t own a car, you can get a non-owner insurance policy very inexpensively. The non-owner policy gives you insurance protection for cars you borrow from friends or family members.
