One of the most common reasons for SR22 insurance is to reinstate driving privileges after a license suspension or revocation. SR22 insurance goes beyond a state’s mandatory auto insurance laws. It guarantees that you’ll keep minimum liability coverage for a specific time in the future.
Common reasons for SR22 insurance:
- DUI / DWI convictions
- Accumulating too many points on your DMV driving record.
- Being involved in an uninsured accident.
- Having multiple at-fault accidents over time makes insurance companies classify you as a high-risk driver.
- Driving without insurance (not providing proof of insurance if an officer pulls you over).
- Applying for a hardship license.
- Being involved in child support or neglect cases.
- Court ordered legal judgments.
How much does high-risk insurance cost?
SR22 requirements and costs can vary between states and between individuals. So it’s helpful to have a basic understanding of how SR22 insurance costs are determined.
When the state requires you to carry SR22 insurance, it will notify you in writing. This notification will outline your specific reasons for SR22 insurance and other requirements. Then you’ll find an insurance provider to attach an SR22 certificate to your auto or non-owner insurance policy and file it with your state DMV.
The starting date for filing an SR22 certificate varies between states. It may begin with the date of the offense, the date of conviction, the date of license suspension, or the date of reinstatement. Generally, you’ll have to carry SR22 insurance without lapse for 3-5 years, depending on the specific reasons for SR22 in your situation.
