What is an SR22?

This is a filing that your insurance company sends to the state of California DMV  that proves you are carrying insurance. Every driver in the state has to meet specific requirements for liability insurance, and most insurance companies will file your policy with the DMV electronically. After it is filed, you will need to make sure your payments are made on time, and that you do not get any more convictions or tickets. You will need to do this for three full years and if there is any cancellations you will have to start the three years over from the beginning.

How do I get one?

If you have a current policy already, you can usually add the SR22 by calling your agent. However, you can most likely expect your rates to increase once your new violations hit your record. If you lose the Good Driver Discount you will face at least a 30% increase in premium. Most California insurance companies have programs with rates that are built around “high-risk” drivers. They may come with certain restrictions, but the price will be more fair.

How much is an SR22?

SR22 filings usually cost around $10-$25 on renewal. It should not be a monthly charge (although you will be charged more if you have a suspension on your record). Be sure to practice safe driving for the three years of the term, and you will probably earn back your Good Driver Discount.
