Colorado SR-22 Insurance
As a high-risk driver, you may have more to deal with than just finding insurance coverage. In addition to your auto policy, you may also need SR-22 insurance in Colorado. While all of these policies may sound confusing, our team at Select Insurance Group can help you navigate the SR-22 requirements and answer your questions about the policies you need.
What Is Colorado SR-22 Insurance?
SR stands for “safety responsibility.” SR-22 insurance is a certificate that tells the state you’ve obtained the minimum auto insurance coverage required in Colorado. This form offers reassurance that if you’re in an accident, you’ll be sufficiently covered. Generally, an SR-22 includes:
- The start and end date of your policy.
- Your birthdate, Social Security number and driver’s license number.
- Details about your vehicle, such as VIN.
Who Needs SR-22 Insurance In Colorado?
Anyone who is considered a high-risk driver needs to get SR-22 insurance in Colorado. This certificate is required for everyone who has lost their license, usually for accumulating too many points or having a DUI or DWI. You must have SR-22 insurance to get your license reinstated.
How Long Do You Need an SR-22 in Colorado?
You usually need to keep your SR-22 active for three years. If the certificate becomes inactive during any part of those three years, you’ll need to get a new SR-22 and start the three-year period again.
Colorado SR-22 Laws and Requirements
The SR-22 is not an insurance policy itself — instead, it shows that you can afford insurance. You can get an owner or non-owner SR-22 insurance policy, depending on whether you own your car or not. A non-owner policy is less expensive. If your policy lapses, the insurance carrier will report it to the Colorado DMV, which will automatically suspend your license.
You must carry insurance that covers $15,000 for property damage, $50,000 per accident for bodily injury, and $25,000 per person for bodily injury to meet state requirements. A licensed agent can ensure your SR-22 is filed correctly, taking a weight off your mind.
How Do I File an SR-22 in Colorado?
You must go through your insurance provider to file an SR-22 in Colorado. You request the form through the carrier, and your insurance will provide the certificate to the state DMV.
How Much Does an SR-22 Cost in Colorado?
The cost of an SR-22 will vary depending on several factors:
- Car model
- Credit score
Most SR-22 certificates in Colorado cost about $25 per month. At Select Insurance Group, we can help you find options for as low as $15 a month. Keep in mind SR-22 certificate costs are in addition to the rates you will pay for your regular auto insurance.
