SR22 Colorado

SR22 Colorado is a certificate of financial responsibility form the state requires for license reinstatement. An insurance provider attaches this form to an insurance policy. To ensure your policy stays current, the issuing insurance company monitors it during the time the state requires you to carry it. When you own a vehicle, the SR22 form is an endorsement to your auto insurance policy. If you don’t own a car, the form is a rider to a non-owner insurance policy.

Certain traffic offenses and violations of Colorado DUI laws can result in suspension of your driver’s license. To reinstate your license, you’ll have to file an SR22 Colorado certificate with the DOR. You probably have many questions come to mind after a driver’s license suspension.

Colorado Implied Consent Law

The Colorado Implied Consent Law requires you to submit to a chemical test for alcohol or drugs if an officer suspects you of DUI/DWI. It means that as a licensed driver, you give your implied or express consent for an officer to test you. You can refuse to test, but not complying will result in the suspension of your license.

The Colorado Implied Consent Law (Colorado Express Consent Law) applies to driving while intoxicated (DWI) or driving under the influence (DUI). Suppose an officer asks you to take a breath test and you refuse?

Colorado DUI Laws

Colorado DUI Laws

Because of the high potential for injury and death resulting from drinking and driving, Colorado DUI laws call for strong penalties for violations. DUI laws outline specifics of driving under the influence of alcohol and illegal or prescription drugs, and the penalties for first and subsequent violations. Many people may feel that they’re capable of driving safely after a drink or two, but it is never completely safe to drive after drinking, smoking marijuana or taking prescription drugs.

As in all states, Colorado DUI laws prohibit driving while under the influence of alcohol or drugs, and outline the consequences of doing so. The terms DUI and DWI have much the same meaning and effect, but there is a slight difference between DUI and DWI Colorado. DUI stands for driving under the influence of alcohol or drugs. DWI stands for driving while intoxicated by alcohol.
