An SR-22 is a type of vehicle liability insurance. It is required in most states if a driver has been in an accident without valid insurance or caught with a DUI. After submitting an SR-22 form you will have to carry it up to 3 or 5 years depending on the infraction.

Most states require drivers to carry an SR 22 form, but if you move from a state where you were required to carry the form, to a state that doesn't have that sort of requirement, you have to continue carrying it until the three-year period expires. States that don't require SR-22 forms include Delaware, Kentucky, Minnesota, New Mexico, New York, North Carolina, Oklahoma and Pennsylvania.
Apart from car accidents in which a driver without auto insurance is involved, there are several other situations that SR 22 forms are associated with. For example, you have to carry an SR 22 form if you are convicted of a DUI, if your license has been suspended or revoked, or if you are a repeat traffic offender.
An SR 22 form contains a driver's personal information, such as name, address, date of birth, license number, social security number, as well as your vehicle's make, model and year, and your car insurance policy number.
As far as the procedure of filing an SR 22 form is concerned, the first thing you have to do is contact your auto insurance company and ask for an SR 22 form, and have an authorized person from the company to sign and date the form. Then, you should pay the filing fee required by the insurance company. The fees vary from one company to another, but you can get online insurance quotes from various companies and compare them.
