What is Washington SR22 Insurance?
The state of Washington requires drivers whose license has been suspended to purchase Washington SR22 insurance as a condition for reinstatement of their license. SR22 insurance is a certificate of financial responsibility that is attached as a rider to your auto insurance policy and filed with the Washington Department of Licensing (DOL). After your license has been reinstated, your Washington SR22 insurance must be maintained for a period of three to five years. The SR22 policy is closely monitored by your insurance provider to ensure that the policy remains in force for the period of time assigned by the state. If your insurance policy lapses or expires, your insurance provider must submit an SR26 filing to the Washington DOL to notify them that you are no longer properly insured to drive. This results in a repeat suspension of your license.
