Understanding an SR-22 form

SR 22 insurance policy is different every state to every state. As often with automobile laws it can vary from state to state throughout the United States. It would be a good idea to check with your insurance company or your local DMV regarding the law on SR 22 in your state. SR 22 forms can often be found on the terms of the insurance, so be sure to check with your insurance company as to what those terms are and the rate behind it. Also be sure to remember that SR 22 isn’t a type of insurance but specific proof that you have a certain type of insurance that is required ( this is based off the financial responsibility that your state requires the designated person to have ). Basically it is a form that your insurance company must help you file to your local DMW informing them that this auto liability is in effect for the individual. It is usually provided when the person has had a background of traffic offenses and has been unable to show that he or she is financially capable or ordered to have one by a judge given for a specific reason based upon the state laws given by the state. The SR 22 is to insure that further problems in the future does not occur like ones that have in the past. It is essentially a form that you must carry with you at all times when driving the designated vehicle or vehicles. It is not something that is optional but mandatory.
