SR22s in Bergheim, TX
An SR22 can only be filed by an insurance company that is authorized to issue SR22s, such as us. So, what exactly is an SR22? It is a document that is needed by the court for people who have been convicted of serious moving violations, including driving under the influemce. The document must be filed by an authorized insurance agency in the area.
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. The filings are required for 3 years after the conviction date. 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. If your policy lapses, we wil notify the department of motor vehicles of the status of your coverage - remember, it is against the law in the state of Texas to drive without valid insurance. 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. There is usually an annual filing fee charged by the insurance company to file the SR22 with the state. Once the probationary period is over, the SR22 filing is not required to maintain an active driver's license. Every state has its own requirements and variations on this form.
