What is an SR-22?

An SR-22 isn’t actually auto insurance. SR-22 is a form your insurance company sends to the state’s DMV showing that you carry the minimum required Liability coverage

Typically, an SR-22 is filed with the state for 3 years.

Reasons you may need an SR-22

black collision icon

Uninsured at-fault accident

black icon of car alert

Lapse in car insurance

Suspended license

black icon of a lock

DUI/DWI convictions

What happens if I don’t file for an SR-22?

If you’re required to have an SR-22 and choose not to file one with your insurance company, you could lose your license and vehicle registration. You may also be required to carry an SR-22 longer than the original term.

You need to maintain the minimum Liability coverage required by your state while you have an SR-22. If there is a lapse or cancellation in your insurance coverage, the same penalties may apply. Plus, driving without insurance can lead to further legal issues. See all of Root’s coverage options.
