Nebraska SR22 DUI insurance is a high-risk insurance policy you’ll need to buy to reinstate your driver’s license after a DUI conviction. Your insurance provider attaches an SR22 form to the policy then electronically submits it to the Nebraska DMV in Lincoln. The insurance company that underwrites your policy monitors it, and if it lapses, the state suspends your license again.
To keep your driving privileges, you’ll have to carry Nebraska suspended license insurance for 3-5 years to maintain financial responsibility. The amount of time the state requires you to keep SR22 insurance depends on the circumstances of your case.
