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 is Non-Owner SR22 insurance?
In Washington state we have a broad form policy that is a better option for those needing a stand-alone SR22 policy than a non-owned policy because non-owned policies don’t cover many borrowed vehicles but a broad form policy will. So, if you don’t want to lose your primary insurance provider due to your SR22 requirement, buying a separate broad form SR22 policy to handle the SR22 requirement may be a smart move.
Can I get SR22 insurance without a car?
A broad form policy is a smart choice for someone who does not own a car but needs an SR22 and wants to be able to drive. Once you get a car you can either get a policy on that car or keep your broad form policy since it covers owned and non-owned vehicles.

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.

Just the Facts about Twisp
Twisp is a town in Okanogan County in north central Washington, United States, which sits at the confluence of the Twisp and Methow rivers. The population was 938 at the 2000 census and decreased to 919 at the 2010 census.
On July 30, 1897, Henry C. Glover platted a town in the Methow Valley he called Gloversville, in which a small store and reveal office were soon established. In 1898, Glover became postmaster of the town, which was now called Twisp, the line of which is unclear. The common description is that it comes from the Okanagan placename /txʷəc’p/, which possibly translates to wasp, yellowjacket, or the unassailable made by a wasp. On June 29, 1899, Amanda P. Burgar platted the town of Twisp adjacent to the indigenous Gloversville site, which was thereafter considered allowance of Twisp.
Twisp soon contained a population of miners and ranchers who were supported by many local businesses, including a drug store, a bank, a hotel, two saloons and a Methodist church. The Methow tribe was furthermore a common sight, who continued to camp in their normal sites and traded in imitation of the settlers. On August 6, 1909, the town was incorporated and elected its first officers. One of the first issues the five-member town council faced was liquor licenses for the two saloons, and a 1910 election was held to determine whether Twisp would accept Prohibition. The saloons served clear drinks on election day, which allegedly anything 88 voters partook in, and Prohibition was rejected by a vote of 56-32. In 1911, electricity was brought to Twisp and the first movie home opened. On January 15, 1912, the Twisp School, constructed at a cost of $12,109.68, opened its doors.
Twisp was largely built of wood and brusquely after midnight on July 24, 1924 a fire broke out in downtown Twisp, which burned alongside two houses and 23 buildings. Only the Filer and McAlister grocery accretion and the Commercial Bank’s vault survived within the flare zone, which were both built of red brick.
In 1940, a $50,000 complement to the Twisp School building was completed, which included a library, study hall and gymnasium, and the Twisp High School was relocated to a additional wing.
