Things people don’t know about non owner SR22 Insurance

 Things people don’t know about non owner SR22 Insurance – Basically, a non-owner policy provides very little coverage.  The non-owner policy provides limited liability coverage if you drive a vehicle that is owned by someone else that is not insured.

Be Very Careful! 

Most states require the actual vehicle to be insured, so in this case, you could lose your license for driving an uninsured vehicle. If you have a non-owner policy, make sure that any vehicle you drive is insured by the vehicle owner.  If you happen to purchase a vehicle and have a non-owner policy, you must contact the insurance company to add the vehicle before any coverage will apply. Sample Scenario Joe doesn’t own a vehicle so he purchased a Florida Non-owner SR22 policy from Select Insurance Group to get his license reinstated.  The SR22 was sent to the State and the state promptly reinstated his license.  Two months later, Billy borrowed his girlfriend’s car to run to the grocery store.  On his way to the store, the tire blew out and Joe hit a parked car and did massive damage to his girlfriend’s car and the car that he hit.  Unfortunately, his girlfriend did not have liability insurance on her car. What Happened?  Joe & his girlfriend both got their driver’s license suspended for the vehicle being uninsured.  The non-owner SR22 policy paid the claim for fixing the parked  car but no coverage applied for fixing the girlfriend’s car.

What is an SR22 filing?

It is a piece of paper that is sent to your state DMV indicating that you have an active liability insurance policy.  It is an extra hassle for the insurance company and not all companies will be willing to do the filing.  Get an Sr22 Quote

Who are SR22 Policies for?

This type of insurance is generally required for drivers who have been caught driving without insurance, especially those who were involved in at-fault accidents while driving without insurance. It is also typically required for those who have been convicted of driving under the influence of drugs or alcohol, had their license revoked or suspended or had too many tickets or traffic offenses in what is deemed a short time period.
