SR22 Information





What is an SR22?



An SR22 form is a form that the Department of Public Safety requires when a person's drivers license has been or will be suspended.


The suspension could be for a DWI, DUI, Drug offense, too many tickets, refusal of breathalizer, having no insurance tickets and other reasons.


The SR22 form simply shows the DPS where you have insurance. While this form is kept on file with the DPS, if your insurance is cancelled or lapses for any reason, the insurance company must notify the DPS that the SR22 form is no longer valid. This can cause your license to be revoked or suspended again.


SR22's are usually required for up to 2 years depending on the reason it was initially required.


Not all insurance companies will issue an SR22.


If you do not own a car and you are in need of an SR22 then you will have to get a "Nonowners" insurance policy with the SR22 attached to it.


There are usually filing fees with the DPS if you need an SR22. These fees are in addition to the cost of the insurance policy.
