SR22s in Bastrop, TX
Here at Stanley Insurance Agency, our team is authorized to file SR22s. The SR22 is a document required by a court or by a state law for persons convicted of certain traffic violations, such as a DUI, reckless driving, multiple offenders, accidents without insurance coverage in force, etc. It is filed with the department of motor vehicles by an insurance company on behalf of an insured individual who has a suspended license that can only be reinstated once an SR22 filing is on record with the department of motor vehicles and once all fines and other court ordered requirements are met.
Filing involves a document which is required by the department of motor vehicles to maintain a driver's license in active status per a court mandated order. This filing is going to be necessary for up to 3 years after the date of conviction of the driver. The filing also shows that the motorist is in compliance with the Financial Responsibility Law in the state of Texas. The SR22 filing is submitted electronically to the department of motor vehicle's database. When and if your policy cancels or lapses, the insurance carrier notifies the department of motor vehicles of the lapsed or cancelled status. When this happens, the department of motor vehciles will suspend your license.
Basically, this document is to help ensure that convicted drivers who have committed serious offenses are in compliance with the state's particular financial responsibility laws. Typically, there will be a yearly filing fee from your insurance company for the SR22 form. Once the probationary period is over, the SR22 filing is not required to maintain an active driver's license. It's important to understand that every state is different when it comes to filing the SR22.
