What is an SR22 insurance policy?
Although referred to as “SR-22 insurance,” An SR-22 is not actually insurance but instead is simply an endorsement to regular insurance policy. This endorsement is filed with the state as proof that you have insurance. The SR22 notifies the state that you have insurance in force and promises to notify them if your policy cancels.
What happens if my SR22 insurance cancels?
When your SR22 policy cancels or lapses, your insurance company is legally required to send an SR-26 form to the state to let them know that your policy is no longer active. If not handled promptly, the state will re-suspend your driver’s license and you will need to jump through all the hoops and pay all the fees required to reinstate your license once again.
How long is an SR22 insurance form required?
Be sure not to cancel your SR22 before the requirement is lifted since your insurer is required to inform the DOL that you no longer have an SR22 and your license could be suspended or revoked again. A simple call to the DOL is usually all that is required to find out how long you will need to carry the SR22.
