Financial responsibility is a term used in connection with standard auto insurance, SR22 insurance and FR44 insurance. Financial responsibility means that you will reimburse others for damage or injury that you may cause while operating a vehicle. A financial responsibility form is a certificate of insurance that is filed with your state Department of Motor Vehicles proving you carry the required minimum liability insurance coverage required by the state. To reinstate your drivers license you will need to file an AAMVA uniform financial responsibility form.
All drivers must be held responsible for paying the costs of personal injury or property damage to others when they cause an accident. Every state has financial responsibility laws that require each driver to carry a minimum amount of auto liability insurance. Drivers are required to provide their financial responsibility form – their auto insurance card – if they are pulled over by an officer or involved in an accident. If a you do not carry the state mandated minimum liability insurance and cannot provide proof of financial responsibility, you face being fined or having your driver’s license suspended.
If your license has been suspended, your financial responsibility obligation will be increased for a period of time in order for you to operate a vehicle. This increased financial responsibility requirement means you must purchase a guarantee of insurance called a financial responsibility form and file it with your state. A standard car insurance ID card proves that you are currently insured. An SR22 or FR44 filing costs more than standard car insurance, because it’s a guarantee that you meet your state’s minimum auto insurance requirements during a future, specified time period.
