SR22s in Bertram, TX
An SR22 can only be filed by an insurance company that is authorized to issue SR22s, such as us. 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. 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. 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.
The SR22 is a system meant to ensure that drivers who have been convicted of serious driving offenses comply with the state's financial responsibility laws. Typically, there will be a yearly filing fee from your insurance company for the SR22 form. After the 3 year period is over, filing will no longer be required each year. Every state has its own requirements and variations on this form.
