What Is California SR-22 Insurance?
In the state of California, you’ll need to provide proof of liability coverage before your license suspension can be lifted. SR-22 insurance certifies that you have obtained the necessary coverage.
An SR-22 is a form that your insurance provider submits on your behalf. The form states that your insurance plan meets California’s liability requirements for drivers in your situation. The insurance provider will also update the state of any coverage changes or lapses.
Note that an SR-22 is not auto insurance, but rather proof of insurance that you tack on to your policy.
Who Needs SR-22 Insurance in California?
California would require you to obtain SR-22 insurance after conviction of a violation that resulted in a driver’s license suspension. Reasons you would need SR-22 coverage include:
- Driving under the influence (DUI)
- Driving while intoxicated (DWI)
- Multiple traffic violations in a short time
- Driving without insurance
- Being declared a negligent operator
You will only need SR-22 coverage if you own a vehicle. There are separate non-owner SR-22 options for licensed drivers who do not own a car.
How Long Do You Need an SR-22 in California?
You will need to maintain your California SR-22 insurance for at least three years following your conviction to avoid another license suspension. During this time, you must prevent further severe road violations and ensure your policy stays active. If you fail to pay or cancel early, the time will reset. You must obtain new SR-22 insurance immediately if your insurance provider drops your plan.
California SR22 Laws and Requirements
California SR-22 insurance must meet three criteria:
- $15,000 in bodily injury coverage per person
- $30,000 in bodily injury coverage per incident
- $5,000 in property damage coverage per incident
How Do I File an SR-22 in California?
You can file an SR-22 through your insurance company. This will prompt the company to inspect your Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) records to uncover the nature of your incident. Your provider may drop your plan or raise your rate as a result.
Some companies do not provide SR-22 insurance, so you’ll need to find one that does. Select Insurance Group offers SR-22 coverage and can compare quotes to find you the most affordable rate. We’ll submit your SR-22 to the DMV on your behalf.
How Much Does an SR-22 Cost in California?
SR-22 coverage costs between $15 and $25 to add to your insurance plan, but it will cause your rate to increase. Speak with your insurance provider to see how much you should expect to pay. Additionally, you must pay the DMV a $125 reissue fee to lift your license suspension.
