SR-22 (The “SR” stands for “safety responsibility”) is a document that verifies that someone has automobile insurance. The SR-22 is prepared by an insurance company and then filed (by the insurance company) with the department of motor vehicles (DMV). The SR-22 is not an insurance policy. It is evidence that you have a policy. Many states require an SR-22 filing for drivers that have had a variety of driving related issues. Although the SR-22 laws and processes vary from state to state, they share the common purpose of enforcing mandatory insurance requirements through the monitoring of continuous insurance coverage. In the case of an SR-22, the monitoring is typically performed by the insurance company that is providing the SR-22. If the individual fails to maintain continuous insurance coverage, the insurance company will simply notify the state and the state will take appropriate action against the individual with the SR-22 requirement. Depending on the state that you live in, an SR-22 may be referred to by any of the following descriptions;
- SR-22 Form
- SR-22 Certificate
- SR-22 Bond
- SR-22 Filing
- SR-22 Insurance
- SR-22 Certificate of Financial Responsibility
