How long do you need SR22 Insurance for?

The duration for which you are required to maintain an SR22 filing can vary depending on the laws and regulations of your state and the reason for needing the SR22. In most cases, the requirement lasts for a minimum period of three years. However, it’s important to note that the actual duration can be longer, depending on the circumstances.

Here are a few factors that can influence the duration of an SR22 filing:

  1. State requirements: Each state has its own rules regarding how long an SR22 filing is necessary. Some states may require SR22 filing for a shorter period, such as one or two years, while others may extend it for five years or more.
  2. Offense severity: The nature of the offense that led to the requirement for an SR22 can affect the duration. Certain serious offenses, such as DUI or multiple DUI convictions, may result in a longer SR22 filing period.
  3. Compliance with requirements: It’s essential to fulfill all the requirements and obligations during the SR22 filing period. This includes maintaining continuous auto insurance coverage and making all necessary premium payments on time. Failure to comply with these requirements could result in an extension of the SR22 filing period or other penalties.

To determine the specific duration of an SR22 filing in your situation, it’s recommended to contact your state’s Department of Motor Vehicles (DMV) or consult with one of our insurance agents. They will have the most up-to-date information regarding the requirements and duration for an SR22 in your state.
