Not many people have heard of SR-22 insurance, so when you get into a situation where it's required, the learning curve can be steep. Below are some of the basics about SR-22 and what you need to know.
Just like interlock ignition devices and treatment classes, SR-22 insurance is often required after a DUI conviction. It is a document that you file with your state that shows you meet the minimum coverages for car insurance legal requirements. It is either required by the state or court-ordered and depending on which entity mandates it, you will either be notified by the DMV via mail or the judge will let you know at your hearing.
There are a lot of ways that people refer to SR-22, including SR-22 certification, SR-22 form, SR-22 insurance, an SR-22, SR-22 bond or a certificate of financial responsibility. Adding to this confusing mix, some states, like Florida and Virginia, have something similar to an SR-22, but different. It's called an FR-44. If you need to know the specifics for your state, DUICare is here to help.
You can get an SR-22 from an auto insurance company. You may be able to have the SR-22 added onto an existing policy, but if not, you may have to shop for a new policy. The document can sometimes be electronically filed, but most often will need to be filed by mail with the state requesting it.
There are free services, like DUICare that can connect you with providers and cut down on the overwhelming nature of insurance, rates and comparison shopping. Call DUICare at (833) 989-1443 and an expert will help you navigate your SR-22 requirements.
Like most DUI requirements, the required length of time you will need to have the SR-22 will vary from state to state. When the requirement begins will also differ depending on your specific state. You will want to know for certain what the exact requirements are to avoid penalties (like your license being suspended or revoked) for canceling too early.
If you could use a helping hand navigating your state's requirements or completing paperwork, an expert at DUICare is here to help.
If you live in a state other than the one where you received you DUI, it can feel even trickier to navigate the requirements. It's important to know that some states won't require an SR-22, but instead have their own version of the form. So, on top of needing to know exactly what is required, you also need to be sure to file the required document with the correct state to meet your DUI requirements.

They are amazing! From helping me set up my interlock to insurance to enrollment. For being my first time I was so confused and didn't understand much. They put it in the easiest way for me to understand. Nicole and Jenni did an amazing job and I recommend them. They don't judge and want the best for you. Especially in hard times like this.
Jenni was super knowledgeable and helpful in getting me started with alcohol classes, SR22 insurance, and an interlock. She was patient and kindly answered all of my questions. After speaking with Jenni it was as if a weight had been lifted and I felt 1000% better about the DUI process. Anyone who gets a DUI should call, I highly recommend this company!
Their help with my out of state problem was resolved in one phone call. Cory got me through a very difficult issue and answered all of my questions, did all of the paperwork and resolved a follow up problem. I could not have gotten through this without them.
Jenni helped me so much! I was so stressed about my DUI and making sure that I adhered to ALL of the requirements after receiving this charge. Jenni helped ease my anxiety and seamlessly walked me through the whole process. Thank goodness for this service.
They will advise you for free, put you in touch with all necessary resources to complete the process of a DWAI/DUI charge, and they actually care about their clients. I have never seen such ethical competency from a business before, and am highly impressed with the mission and morals behind this service.
