SR22 Insurance

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
