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 need to purchase 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.
Colorado Broad Form Insurance
There is another auto insurance option in Colorado called broad form insurance, which offers very cheap rates, but with VERY minimal liability coverage. It covers you as the operator of one or multiple vehicles (thus it is also called “named driver insurance”), and it’s also available as a non-owner insurance policy. An SR22 insurance certificate can be attached to a Colorado broad form policy for the purpose of license reinstatement. To learn more about the strict coverage limitations of type of policy, see Broad Form Vehicle Insurance and What is Broad Form SR22 Insurance?
Drivers who are required to carry Colorado SR22 insurance must do so without lapse for a period of one to three years. When SR22 insurance is purchased, the insurance company issues and files the SR22 certificate with the Colorado Department of Motor Vehicles. If the policyholder fails to keep their Colorado SR22 insurance in force at all times during the required time period, the insurance company will submit an SR26 filing to the DMV, which results in repeat driver’s license suspension. This is a costly mistake that can result in additional fines up to $500.00 or even jail time.
More information about licensing, motor vehicle laws and penalties for moving violations can be found on the Colorado DMV Website.
