The state of Illinois mandates all high risk drivers and individuals who have had their license suspended or revoked to carry Illinois SR22 insurance.
What is Illinois SR22 Insurance?
SR22 insurance Illinois is liability coverage in the form of a certificate of financial responsibility endorsed to a primary auto insurance policy. The SR22 certificate is filed with the Illinois State Department of Motor Vehicles, serving as a guarantee that the driver is covered by the proper amount of liability insurance without lapse for a specific period of time. Generally, Illinois SR22 insurance is required to be carried for three years. If it lapses, expires or is canceled during that period of time, the insurance provider is required to complete an SR26 filing with Illinois DMV, resulting in the driver’s license being suspended again.
Illinois SR22 insurance coverage can be liability only, or with collision and comprehensive coverage if you own a vehicle. If you do not own a vehicle, you can purchase a non owner Illinois SR22 insurance policy. See our Non Owner SR22 Insurance Illinois page for more information.
