The SR-22 Form
SR-22 is a document that verifies insurance of an automobile or motorcycle. SR stands for Safety Responsibly. A driver may be required to obtain an SR-22 to reinstate their driving privileges following suspension of license due to an at-fault car accident where a driver is not insured or a conviction of another driving offense, such a DWI (driving without insurance), reckless driving, or a DUI. Once your SR-22 has been filed (by your insurance company) and your state DMV has proof of insurance, driving privileges are reinstated and suspension of your license will be lifted.
How long will this probation period last?
An SR-22 may be required for three years for conviction of driving without insurance or driving with a suspended license and up to five years for a DUI. If the policy holder fails to pay the premiums, the SR-22 is cancelled and an SR-26 is filed (again, by your insurance company) with the DMV. When the DMV receives the SR-26, the policy holder’s license is suspended until a new SR-22 is filed.
