What is Colorado SR22 Insurance?
Colorado SR22 Insurance is high-risk insurance that’s required for driver’s license reinstatement. There are two types of SR22 Colorado insurance: owner and non owner. Colorado SR22 owner insurance is financial responsibility form (certificate) that’s attached to a driver’s primary auto insurance policy. It is for drivers who have a vehicle registered in their name and want to have their license reinstated.
Drivers who do not own a vehicle, but wish to reinstate their suspended or revoked license will need a Colorado SR22 non owner insurance policy. Colorado non owner SR22 insurance is filed in the same way as owner SR22 insurance, but it is a liability-only policy that covers the policyholder when they drive a non owned vehicle on an occasional basis. A non owner SR22 policy acts as secondary insurance to the vehicle owner’s primary insurance. It does not cover household vehicles, rental or commercial vehicles. Non Owner SR22 vs SR22 Insurance explains the difference between these types of SR22 insurance.
How long do I need to keep high-risk insurance?
Drivers need to carry Colorado SR22 insurance without lapse for one to three years. When you buy SR22 insurance, insurance provider issues and files the certificate with the Colorado Department of Revenue (DOR) Driver Services. If you fail to keep this policy in force the entire time, your agent must submit an SR26 filing to the DMV, which results in another license suspension. This is a costly mistake that can result in additional fines up to $500.00 or even jail time.
Colorado Broad Form Insurance
Another auto insurance option available in Colorado is Broad Form Insurance. This type of insurance offers very cheap rates, but with VERY minimal liability coverage. Broad form insurance (named driver insurance) covers only you as the owner-operator of one or multiple vehicles. If you don’t own a vehicle, you can get a non-owner broad form insurance policy. For the purpose of license reinstatement, an insurance provider can attach an SR22 insurance certificate to a Colorado broad form policy.
