What is an SR-22?
An SR-22 is a certification issued by your car insurance company to prove you have the minimum coverages required by your state. If you are required to hold an SR-22, you will be notified by the state.
The certification is usually mandatory for drivers involved in at-fault accidents while driving without insurance, drivers convicted of a DUI, drivers who’ve had their license revoked or suspended, or someone who’s had many tickets and/or traffic offenses in a relatively short amount of time.
The General® can help navigate through the often-confusing SR-22 insurance world, with everything from the SR-22 form (usually referred to as an SR-22 bond, SR-22 form, or an SR-22 certificate) and hopefully provide you with cheap SR-22 insurance that you can depend on.
The General® can help you:
- Obtain the proper SR-22 documentation
- Purchase an affordable auto insurance policy
- Get back out on the road
How long are SR-22 Filings Required?
This can vary by state and by severity of the offense. The typical SR-22 insurance requirement is three years. If you cancel your policy prior to the termination date, the Insurance Company is obligated to file an SR-26 notifying the state that you no longer have insurance.
How do I file for an SR-22?
In most states, your insurance company can handle the filing of your SR-22 for you. If not, you may have to file your SR-22 form directly with the DMV (see below for contact info).
If you choose the General® as your SR-22 car insurance company – a great choice – we can help you take the headache out of dealing with your SR-22 bond.
How much does an SR-22 form cost to file?
The fee to file your SR-22 is usually around $25. If this is your first time with The General®, who will proudly provide you with cheap SR-22 insurance, you’ll see the fee for your SR-22 included in your insurance quote.
How do I check the status of my SR-22?
If you’re required to file an SR-22 form, you usually have to keep it for three years. To see if your SR-22 has expired, you can call The General® Sales and Customer Service line at 1-844-328-0306 or call your local DMV office.
