SR22 Frequently Asked Questions

What is an SR-22?

An SR-22, also called a Certificate of Financial Responsibility (CFR), is a certificate mandated by the state and provided by your auto insurance company that verifies that you have auto insurance liability coverage.

Most states will require you to show future financial responsibility by having SR22 insurance. SR-22 insurance can be purchased by a licensed insurance company in your state. The form shows the state that you have minimum liability limits for auto insurance. It is most often required after you get cited for driving without insurance, DUI or other major traffic violations.

SR-22 isn’t a type of insurance, but rather proof that you have auto insurance.

Simply, it is a form which must be filed by the insurance company to the DMV, stating that auto liability insurance is in effect for you.
